Last fall, we collected a bus full of paragliding equipment for the School of Dreams project in Malawi, and, until a few weeks ago, had no way of getting it there.

Today, we're so incredibly excited to announce that, through the help of our friends The Cloudbase Foundation, Africycle and Sean O'Connor, the gear magically found its way from Sean's attic to a container in Victoria, BC, setting sail for Malawi shortly.

Thank you Benjamin Voss, Sean O'Connor, John Robertson, Jennifer Kaatz, Chad Loreen, Matt Cone, Stephanie Terrien and the entire Cloudbase Foundation team. Together, you are making The School of Dreams come true!

My best Canadian friends, Ben and Erica have recently arrived in Malawi. They are here to help me explore all of what our land has to offer paragliders and also to help me find the best place to build my paragliding school, The School of Dreams.

We are in the Mount Mulanje area right now and internet access is difficult, but we will share with you friends as much as we can.

The School of Dreams team has landed in Malawi after a beautiful afternoon flight from the Mulanje Massif you can see in the background.

Many of these youth are seeing paragliders for the first time and are so thrilled that they will follow you for an hour or two, all the way to the market, and back again.

Off to a market on father’s bicycle.

Being small and short, kids in Malawi are not able to ride these machines on the crossbar and use the saddle on top. Nonetheless, they are able to peddle an adult bicycle by pushing their legs between the three bars.

During the learning process, they encourage each other with the story of a determined ant which swallowed a Banana Bread. ‘If it did it, we can do it too!’ they say :). G
