WHAT IS THE « RALLYE AICHA DES GAZELLES » ?

 

Rag17_parcours-hd-1507921657

A SINGLE FEMALE SPORTS CONCEPT

A 100% female rally that brings together more than 30 nationalities of women aged 18 to 65 in Morocco

160 female crews onboard of a 4X4, a cross over, a truck, a SSV, a quad or a motorbike

A physical and mental test of 2500 kms in 9 days off-road in the Moroccan desert

Another vision of motorsport, navigation is done :

"old fashion" … without GPS only with map and compass!

"no notion of speed" … it is important to make the fewest kilometers to find the beacons in the desert

Strong human values such as temerity, courage, sharing, perseverance, determination, la solidarity and respect.

 

WITH A TRUE ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH

The rally Aicha des Gazelles is:

a partnership with the association Yann Arthus Bertrand (www.goodplanet.org)

the first rally to get certified ISO 14001 since 2010 which aims to help companies to manage the impact of their activities on the environment and demonstrate the effectiveness of their management

 

AND CITIZEN

This rally is not only a sport car racing, this is also the willingness to engage with local populations via the association Cœur de gazelles.

Cœur de gazelles works closely with the Moroccan government in order to carry out "concrete and useful" projects for the Moroccan populations.

She relies on the strength, notoriety, values and especially the logistics of the Rally to serve population. 

Its main actions are:

Medical: access to care in remote villages, thanks to the Caravan.

Education: the battle against illiteracy by building.

Environment: creation of wells and tree plantations.

Vocational reintegration of single women.

Assistance with everyday life: donation in remote villages.

Our association « l’Evidence du désert » partners with the association Coeur de gazelles by collecting hygiene products for the local population, such as toothpaste, toothbrush, shampoo and biodegradable shower gel, baby bottle, powdered milk, plasters, sterile gloves, antibacterial gel, …

Allocation of funds

WHAT IS THE FINANCING FOR ?

Why supporting us?

 BECAUSE

You are part of our family 

                                    …to our friends …

                                       …to our colleagues… so you necessarily want to help us

(Isn’t it?) 

OR…

… you came across our project by chance

Know that there is no hazard in life. That’s a SIGN!

 AND

Gentlemen,     

Women’s rally² + orientation + mechanical = LOL

 

Confess that this is the equation that will illuminate your day and eventually your week ! Imagine your parties with friends, your coffee break with your colleagues: follow two women in the Moroccan desert for a 4x4 rally, with no GPS …. Amongst 300 other gazelles

Insurgent laughter! So for that you have to support us!!

 THEREFORE…

Ladies, 

We have all the more need of you to make lie these men and make them swallow their pride when they see us cross the finish line.

But not only support us, is also sharing the adventure with us.

 FINALLY

We are adventurers, determined, persevering and responsible so we have decided not to do the rally on camel back but with a true vehicle, just as intrepid and valiant as we are!

 SO

 You are asking yourself why 5000 euros (total rally’s budget of 30 000 euros: 15 000 euros fee registration, 8 000 euros vehicle, 4 000 euros training, 3 000 euros logistic & safety equipments) ? It is because we have to finance our 3rd team member, our 4x4.

Then the principle of Kisskissbankbank is "all or nothing" !

- Below 5 000 €, we get nothing (= your donations will be returned to you)! :((((

- Above 5 000 €, the project is sanctioned and you help us to finance our vehicle and even more because any amount collected above 5 000€ will be distributed the Beatrice Schonberg Foundation (www.fondation-beatrice-schonberg.org), for information 1000 euros of your donations allow to enroll a girl for one year.

Then we count on you to blow up the kitty!

 We have created the association L’Evidence du désert in order to raise the necessary funds for the success of this project.

No matter how much you donate, for us, it is already a lot. It helps us to move towards the starting line and we will always be grateful to you.

 Thanks to you, we will be able to buy/rent and prepare for the dunes of the Moroccan desert, our companion of road and to put on the number 145!
