The Lonely Road Challenge
The purpose of The Lonely Road Challenge is to raise both awareness of, and financial support for, the plight of Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Southern Africa.
The Challenge is an adventure, embarked upon by The Lonely Road founder, Thabang Skwambane, that presents a truly physical, mental and emotional ‘challenge’.
