FENNECteam is first ever slovenian team participating in charity event Mongol Charity Rally.
It's a charity event under organization of english GO-HELP. Main goal of expedition is to drive vehicle from Europe (in our case, Slovenia) to Ulaan-bataar, capitol of Mongolia. Vehicle is donated to organizations, selected by GO-HELP; usually there are hospitals, fire departments, post offices or special gift to community for transportation of children from village to school in main town. For these organizations we also collect funds, that are donated afterwards.
This year, eleventh time in a row, 150 teams will start from all over Europe on different courses with common goal – safely drive to capital of Mongolia. In our heads we have one way roadtrip, aprox. 13.000 km in lenght, visiting 10 countries on the way, crossing three deserts and five mountain ranges.
We believe that there is still good inside us, and because of that we believe we can make this project successful. After all, it is a lifelong expirience, on the right side of the heart.
We encourage you to regularly check our webpage and social media and become part of the expedition.
Project's business plan in slovenian language is avaliable here.
Comunity's codex is published here.
