Who we are
The Desert2Surf Initiative was first established in the year 2008 by a couple and some dedicated people. This couple had gone to a remote place to teach for half a year in the year 2006. After the service, they were so touched by the plight of those living in such remote places that they formed the Desert2Surf Initiative two years after they first set foot at that place with the aim to helping to provide all individuals living in those remote places to also have a better shot at living life to the fullest and encountering life in different ways.
