DreamHigher is an outreach initiative providing the vulnerable youth of Cape Town with Rock Climbing opportunities (registered NPO # 208-621).
In collaboration with the Homestead Project for Street Children, we are calling for support to raise funds to help one of our most talented climbers, Obert. Obert is currently stateless (no birth certificate, no ID, no passport). Despite recently completing his schooling his status as stateless means he is unable to find legitimate employment and realize his full potential. He has been one of the most active members of our club from its foundation in 2017. His progression and incredible positivity despite his circumstances keep inspiring us and our local climbing community.
His previous unsuccessful attempts to return to Zimbabwe and obtain documentation have exposed him to traumatic and dangerous conditions. We want to ensure that he is able to safely journey to Zimbabwe and return home to Cape Town to start his tertiary education and keep climbing!
We’re hoping to cover the following with the funds raised:
- 3-week trip to Zimbabwe for Obert (ZAR 13 000 | 904 USD)
- 1-week trip to Zimbabwe for a facilitator to help him cross the border and submit his application at Home Affairs (ZAR 5000 | 348 USD)
- Emergency Zimbabwe passport (ZAR 4580 | USD 319)
- South African Study visa (ZAR 1175 | USD 82)
Total ZAR 23 755 | USD 1651
Please watch the beautiful video (produced by the talented duo BeBolder) and read the following article about his stories, support him by donating to our fundraising campaign.
Thank you for your support!
