<-------------------------- "So is that it? Are you done now? Are you ready to go?" - I hear you asking.

Well not quite. :(


Funding for Visas, food, communications etc are still needed.
And for this I have devised a very creative and more lateral approach toward sponsorship.

Have a look at this page: Sponsorship Opportunities

This is all I still have to sort out. At this stage I am launching on the 27th April from Cape Town, without any funding.

So - should you know of any individual/companies/potential mad people that might be interested in helping in any way...please shout. ----> jolandie.rust@gmail.com
