Blauteam and Captain Denim, on a solidarity raid in Morocco
According to the latest official studies, 79% of people in absolute poverty in Morocco live in rural areas. For this reason, Uniraid has been held every February for several years, an adventure trip in which participants cross Morocco from north to south to deliver material to 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 the participants must cross the Atlas and reach the most remote villages, with a clear humanitarian objective: to deliver 50kg of material to the most disadvantaged populations in Morocco.
As explained by the Organization , Uniraid is not any type of competition or raid with timed stages, it is a raid based on stages that are intended to carry out a humanitarian activity, with solidarity, teamwork, the spirit of improvement and the creativity as key points.
The different teams, each made up of 2 participants, carry out the raid aboard a non-4x4 vehicle over 20 years old, for which they have to develop a prior business plan in order to obtain the necessary sponsorship to register. .
The challenge they face: overcome the 7 stages of the solidarity raid equipped only with a roadbook, a map and a compass, without the help of GPS or electronic devices of any kind, facing the various strategy and skill tests proposed by the Organization.
In our case, we have joined the Blauteam team as sponsors, made up of Jordi Miquel and Enric Trullols, 4th year Mechanical Engineering students at the EUSS University School, and a 1994 Seat Marbella, which will allow them to deliver all the material long and wide of the desert in this solidarity 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 participating teams in carrying out 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! Don't you think?
