In March 2013, we met Elizabeth Gowing. She found out about communities in Kosovo where the children couldn’t go to school because they had no shoes; where the children wanted to go to school but were refused because of a bizarre regulation that required children over 9 to pass a test before registering to school.
She decided to open a school where her team of volunteers gives some free classes to the children in their own neighborhood.
After listening to her stories, the founder of Wanderlust Road Trip Relief (Ben) thought about a way to get involved. In July 2013, he traveled to Pristina, Kosovo, to meet these children & the volunteers that give them free classes. He decided to help on this cause and got the idea of a charity road-trip starting in England to bring goods for these children and charities in Kosovo. A relief for those who want to learn. A 6000km cultural discovery travel for those who want to help to learn. Hence, Wanderlust Road Trip Relief (WRT) was founded
The 1st edition of this charitable event is being launched in August 2014.
