On the 30th May 2017 Rachel and Julie will cycle 300 km around Southern Switzerland to raise money for an educational project in Zambia.
This four-day adventure will take us around Lac Leman and into the Valais region (see the map images for our route).
We are raising money for an education project supported by the International School of Geneva and run by a Zambian non-profit organisation: the Zambezi Educational and Environmental Camps (ZEEC).
The project helps three Primary schools (Sankandi, Kabula and Nakabunze Basic Schools) and one High School (Sioma High School) in the Lozi region of the Western Province of Zambia, one of the poorest regions in the country. The money we raise will go directly to paying for much-needed equipment and supplies for the schools.
If we had done any training this cycle might seem an easy task, but a little thing called a 'teacher training qualification' has kept us so busy this year we've not had time to do any meaningful practice. The cycle-geeks among you will be able to follow us on Strava.
