It is through our physical challenges that we identify in a tangible way with the incredibly steep climb to freedom so many women and children have every day. Each challenge produces prayer and finances for over 20 projects in Africa, and awareness of the injustices taking place in the world.
EDIT: Check out our virtual challenges we are conducting this year instead! You can still be a voice for the voiceless this year! http://thefreedomchallengeafrica.com/virtual-challenges/
On 29 July-10 August a big group of people will take on the challenge to hike the Tankwa Camino, known as a modern day “Great Trek”. Participants will trek through one of the most starkly beautiful areas of South Africa. We did this challenge two years ago and had a lot of interest after that so we were asked if we can organize it again!
Details of Ministry
The challenge to get up every morning for 10 days and take on an average of 26 km per day, is a test of any hiker’s ability and will challenge your hearts for the vulnerable and marginalized of the world.
This will be a time to encounter God in a way that is beyond explanation. The vastness of the region, though sheltered by mountain ranges, offers the most serene silence which will reverberate in your ears. It is here where the boundary between two provinces is crossed on the longest gravel road in South Africa.
The challenge begins months before the trek by being a light and voice for the injustice of modern day slavery. Prior to your arrival for the challenge, you will be asked to raise awareness and funds for Freedom Challenge projects within Africa. The exact amount will vary based on your home country.
Are you passionate about the gospel and making a difference in the lives of vulnerable women and children in Africa? Freedom Challenge Africa wants to see vulnerable, oppressed, and enslaved women and children set on a path to freedom and become vibrant communities of Jesus followers.
In joining this challenge you will make this vision become a reality.
Are you willing to raise funds, mobilize prayer, and raise awareness in your local community?
Then the Tankwa Camino Challenge is for YOU!
