Inspire Worldwide kayak across Lake Malawi
This year we are providing some sponsorship to Mike Lamb from Inspire Worldwide who is padding across Lake Mawali this summer.
The seed of the idea was planted two years ago when Mike helped manage a project building a school in the rural Blantyre district of Malawi. "The day that they we handed over the school to the children was one of the most amazing days of my life. To see so many children so happy was a moment I knew I would never forget and it was then I vowed to return".
The plan is to kayak 250 kilometres along Lake Malawi retracing the route taken by David Livingstone during his initial exploratory expeditions. Mike plans to make undertake environmental education workshops along the way.
John Shipton kindly sent back a trip report back from a paddling trip to Croatia...
