What we do: Y Care is a charity organisation founded in 2005 and based in Botswana. Y Care is raising funds for charities in Botswana by organising 2 and 3 days sponsored walks in the most spectacular and interesting areas of Botswana such as the Salt Pans of Makgadikgadi and the Kalahari Desert to mention a few. The walks cover 40-50 km per day. Individuals and corporate teams are participating on the walks which, in addition to discover the beauty of Botswana, are foremost about charity but also about team building, networking, personal growth and extending the walker’s limits of what he/she actually can achieve.
We need volunteers to: From the walks, Y Care is donating £30-50,000 annually towards 20-25 selected and functioning charities in Botswana which work in youth, vulnerable children, women, art, sport and culture. The charities are geographically spread out all over Botswana. They need volunteers who can work with them in areas such as fundraising, skills empowerment (accounting, management, technical, etc.), income generating activities, etc.
Non-cash donations needed: For Y Care being able to continue to develop the support to charities in Botswana, there is need for donations in kind, such as: 6 x tents (2-3 pers), 1 x vehicle (4x4), camping equipment, 3 x mountain bikes, etc.
