The main aim of the tour is to raise funds for the One School, One Sports Field project.

This project will pro­vide pre­vi­ously dis­ad­van­taged schools with the means to keep the chil­dren off the streets and the facil­ity to teach them a sport. As part of this project, chil­dren will also be taught about their envi­ron­ment and con­ser­va­tion by sup­port­ing Birdlife South Africa projects. Due to major prob­lems with drug taking and every­thing else that goes with it, The Rotary Club of Johannesburg New Dawn are actively supporting the “Anti-drug* as well as *HIV/AIDS* aware­ness campaigns. All funds raised from this ultra-cycle tour are fully audited.

The 2014 tour will be known as the “Rotary Tour Deux Déserts” (Tour of two deserts) and a doc­u­men­tary of between 90 — 120 min­utes will be pro­duced by *Noisy Pic­tures Pro­duc­tions*. The Direc­tor, Gert van Niek­erk, is very well known in the Egoli and Bin­neland TV cir­cles.
