Help us end poverty in the next generation
Matt Napier is an adventurer and poverty ambassador who undertakes various walking and cycling challenges to raise awareness of global poverty as well as raising funds for his Charity Partners and sharing his story to highlight the role of sustainable development in overcoming poverty once and for all.
In June 2017 Matt will commence his next adventure, walking 1850kms from the bottom of Namibia to the top, following the infamous Namib Desert the whole way. The Namib desert in one of the most uninhabitable parts on earth, the locals call it the land God created in anger or the gates to hell so it will be quite a challenge.
Having previously cycled and walked across Australia, then walking across Africa last year living under the poverty line for the same cause Matt is no stranger to the physical challenges involved however this will be a different type of challenge. He will be faced with isolation and a desert that takes no prisioners. Matt will once again be kicking and/or carry a soccer ball the whole way as a way of connecting with people from all walks of life and highlighting how sport is being used as a tool to help alleviate poverty in Africa.
The funds raised during this journey will be used to support the work of two Charity Partners – Caritas Australia and Empower Projects – by funding two crowd-funding campains #walk4malawi and #walk4water.
