Current and Future 'Challenges'

Walk for Water

30 May 2010 - Hathersage

Water is something we take for granted in this country, something we often don't give a second thought to; however, there are countries around the world that are in dire need of permanent water supplies.  The simple act of turning a tap on is not a luxury for everyone; often women have to walk miles every day to collect water to bring back to their family.

Walk for Water is a fund raising campaign of Project African Wilderness, which since 2007 has raised over £1,500 by ‘Walking for Water’.

Our aim is to raise funds to provide a safe water supply to Mwabvi and the surrounding villages, in southern Malawi.

In 2010 Walk for Water will go national, to help us to complete our urgently needed water projects and provide pemanant water supplies in Malawi.

Our Walk for Water in 2010 is an opportunity to raise money for a good cause whilst taking in the stunning English countryside – Please come and join us on May 30, 2010.

From Hathersage village centre, our route rises steeply to Mitchell Field then up to Burbage Bridge, which will be our lunch stop and an opportunity to enjoy the fine views. After an easy walk along Burbage Rocks and down through the Longshaw Estate, we will take the steep path down Padley Gorge to Grindleford, where we will join the river path for a leisurely return to Hathersage.

This is a circular walk of 10 km (7 miles) with stewards. Please note there are stiles and several steep uphill and downhill sections on rough terrain, so walkers must be fit and wear suitable footwear.

Register today with a £10 per person or £15 per family deposit!

Advanced notice!  Mwabvi Visit 2010

Summer 2010

In April 2009 we ran a small challenging bike ride in Malawi and a  3 day trip down to Mwabvi to see our conservation work.

In 2010 we're offering you the opportunity to visit Mwabvi for a week or 10 days, over the UK summer which is the coolest time of year at Mwabvi. Temperatures are similar to hot spring/cool summer days in the UK and northern Europe!

We'd love to show you the reserve, some animals on day and night gane drives, and our operations at Mwabvi. You can visit the local villages and meet our neighbours, go to the trading centre at Bangula and call in at Lake Malawi on the way back north.

We'd love to see you, and show you our work and life at Mwabvi. Do join us! Details will be available later in 2009.
