As a passionate kayaker, I am thrilled to undertake the Paddle for Egypt project, a solo kayaking event covering 1200 kilometers on the Nile River in Egypt. This challenging expedition will take place in November 2023 and will span a period of 30 days, starting from Aswan and ending in Rasheed (Rosetta). I will have to paddle an average of 40 kilometers per day for 30 consecutive days, making it a physically and mentally demanding challenge.
The Challenge That Really Matters
I have completed several challenging activities, and I am excited to combine my love for kayaking with the mission of helping vulnerable children and families in Egypt. Through the Paddle for Egypt project, I aim to raise awareness and funds for SOS Children’s Villages Egypt, a non-profit organization that provides care, education, and other essential services to those in need.
This project is not just about me and my skills as a kayaker. It is also about showcasing the incredible capabilities of a solo kayaker and promoting the sport in Egypt. I hope that my journey along the Nile River will inspire others to take up kayaking and explore the beauty of Egypt’s waterways.
While the Paddle for Egypt project is a solo initiative, it is also a collective effort to make a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children and families in Egypt. I invite participants and sponsors to join me in supporting the work of SOS Children’s Villages Egypt by making donations and spreading the word about this important cause.
Overall, I am excited to take on this challenge and make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. The Paddle for Egypt project is an opportunity for me to push my limits as a kayaker while raising awareness and funds for a worthy cause.
