From 5th – 12th October 2016 Cape to Cape Explorer Tours will be supporting the Shine a Light project in their endeavour to raise funds for refugees both at home and abroad. Last year the Shine a Light project raised $14,000 which went towards the purchase of solar lanterns for young refugee students and audio equipment for a youth development project. This year we will continue our fundraising support for vulnerable refugees at home and abroad through this Cape to Cape fundraising walk.
In a show of solidarity with those who have walked many more miles in search of safety we will walk from lighthouse to lighthouse, Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, to shine a light on the experiences of refugees and asylum seekers. By committing to raising at least $500 towards the Shine a Light project, we are inviting you to join us for 135km hike from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin for just $1295 per person. Proceeds will go towards supporting Shine a Light for Kakuma & the Fair Go For Asylum Seekers campaign. Shine for Kakuma will be using the proceeds to purchase additional solar lanterns to support more refugees with their studies. Our support for the Fair Go For Asylum Seekers campaign will enable the Humanitarian Group provide much needed specialised legal advice, assistance and representation to highly vulnerable asylum seekers. Without this assistance, these asylum seekers will be left without the means or the knowledge to put together their claim for asylum and navigate the complex legal process.
In registering as a Shine a Light walker we ask that you commit to raising at least $500 in sponsorship (hopefully more!) from friends, family or colleagues.
