Headwinds of Poverty
Headwinds of Poverty is a documentary about three normal Aussie guys who thought riding their mountain bikes 5500km through 7 Southern African countries sounded like a good idea. Their hope was to ride 200km + a day for 27 days in order to raise ongoing support for 200 children living in extreme poverty to attend and complete their primary education, as part of a holistic development project. Throughout the journey, the riders had to face numerous difficulties including, headwinds, terrain, weather, border crossings, roads – or lack thereof – limited supplies and a diet that consisted at some points of chocolate, coke and chips in order to achieve the near impossible target.
Headwinds of Poverty is a partnership between Orsino Media and Eagles Wings, with Global Development Group responsible to AusAid for the project being supported in Zambia. For further information visit the Headwinds of Poverty website.
