According to the latest official studies, 79% of people living in absolute poverty in Morocco live in the rural world. For this reason, Uniraid has been celebrated every February for several years, a journey-adventure in which participants cross Morocco from north to south to deliver material in the desert villages. And this year, Captain Denim, we have joined the solidarity raid!
Uniraid is a solidarity project aimed at students between 18 and 28 years old, which takes place in a raid format through Morocco. It is a 9-day adventure in which participants must cross the Atlas and reach the most remote villages, with a clear humanitarian objective: to deliver 50kg of material among the most disadvantaged populations of Morocco.
As explained by the Organization, Uniraid is not any kind of competition or raid with timed stages, it is a raid based on stages that aim to carry out a humanitarian activity, with solidarity, teamwork, the spirit of improvement and creativity as key points.
The different teams, each formed by 2 participants, make the raid on board a non-4x4 vehicle of more than 20 years, for which they have to develop a previous business plan in order to get the necessary sponsorship to make the registration.
The challenge they face: overcome the 7 stages of the solidarity raid with only a roadbook, a map and a compass, without the help of GPS or electronic devices of any kind, facing the various tests of strategy and skill proposed by the Organization.
In our case, we have joined as sponsors the Blauteam team, formed by Jordi Miquel and Enric Trullols, students of the 4th year of Mechanical Engineering at the EUSS University School, and a Seat Marbella from 94, which will allow them to deliver all the material they need. long and wide of the desert in this solidary raid. As they explain, "one of the reasons that have moved us to join this solidarity adventure is the passion for the car and the concern to carry out a social work in a totally different country."
In addition, the team will study the joint involvement with other teams participants in a joint project to improve access to water and electricity.
Uniraid is a beautiful and fun way to help the most disadvantaged while you live an incredible adventure learning and developing new skills, an unforgettable experience! Do not you think?
