Outreach – Soweto, Kliptown Youth Progam.

In the final days before we began our epic Motoquest through Africa, Istene and I went to Kliptown Youth Program (KYP), in Soweto, South Africa. That morning we bought 100 school exercise books, 10 colouring books, 30 packets of crayons, 200 pens, and 6 soccer balls. This was to supplement the things I squeezed into my bags from Australia.

In 2014 I worked at KYP for a couple of weeks and I fell in love with the place. Warm friendly smiles and a wonderful community who look out for each other. Fighting to build a better future for the youth.

To go back was an amazing experience and the excitement of the kids as they crowded around us, puts a smile on my face even now.

The Nitty Gritty Nomads plan to and will continue to do, more charity work and support outreach programs, for Wildlife and Communities on our Motoquest through Africa.

If anyone is interested in helping us, then any donations towards these activities would be massively appreciated by myself and the rest of the team. And by them of course!
