We were first introduced to the safe foundation through our friend Anj and have loved hearing about the amazing work they do for communities around the world. We have always felt very passionate about small-scale, grass root charities whom often have the biggest impact towards communities in need. We feel the Safe Foundation do just that and are confident that the funds we aim to raise will go directly towards helping the marginalised Gypsy Dalit community of India.

Since 2012, the "Gypsy Dalit" community in Mugaiyur, Southern India, are one of the most marginalised communities in the world living in a discriminatory "cast" system and are deemed untouchable due to their low status. This has left them unable to gain access to basic community services such as education and healthcare.

The next major milestone for this project will be the construction of the community center that will be a safe place for the community to learn agricultural practices, literacy and numeracy skills. The Safe Foundation will also employ a full-time teacher and health care worker to work at the center.

We want to help this community and plan to cycle 500km from North Wales to South Wales. We will begin our journey at the tip of N. Wales in Llandudno, travelling around the Llyn Peninsula on day 2, Snowdonia on day 3, down Mid Wales on day 4 and 5, through the arduous hills of Brecon Beacons on day 6, ending our journey at Hoogah, Swansea on day 7.

This is the biggest and most difficult challenge we’ve ever faced and are extremely nervous and excited for what’s ahead!

We want to make it clear that 100% of the funds raised will go directly towards the building costs of the community centre. Please support this desperate and marginalised community and give what you can to help!
