In 1998, inspired by the famous Paris-Dakar Rally, six French students started off on an adventure in the desert for the first time. They pursued the ambitious goal of bringing school supplies for Moroccan children from Paris to Marrakesh. And as if this were not challenging enough, they chose the Renault R4 cult car, at that time a popular student car, as means of transport.
Each team collects and distributes a minimum of 50 kilograms of school equipment as well as ten kilograms of food for Moroccan children in order to give them access to an education. A total of over 60 tons of school supplies is typically collected, which the well-known organization “Enfants du Désert” (Children of the Desert), who collaborates closely with UNICEF, receives and passes on to various schools.
