Hey everyone! I’m Matthew from South Africa!

I’m an adventurer, humanitarian, teacher, writer and anthropologist passionate about ‘at the edge’ expeditions and outreach service projects.

I’m fundraising to get sports shoes for all 1800 students of uKhanyo Primary School in Masiphumelele, Cape Town. A donation of just R150 buys a pair of brand new sneakers which will offer confidence, happiness and hope to the amazing kids of uKhanyo.

I volunteer as a sports coach at the school via the physical education initiative run by the fantastic NGO MasiCorp, and hold social beach cricket, rugby and soccer sessions to connect with the kids from Masiphumelele, but also with people of all backgrounds in the spirit of playing, uniting and experiencing life to the fullest.


Remaining funds will go toward supporting my expedition to climb Mt. Mafadi, South Africa’s highest peak (3,450m) in the Drakensberg, as soon as the target is near complete / complete.
