Cape2Kili incoming: Cally Silberbauer is about to embark on a trip of a lifetime. She will be cycling from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro, passing through Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, and Tanzania. When she reaches Kilimanjaro, she will ascend on my bicycle and acclimatise before attempting to set the female fastest known time (FKT) on my bike.
Cally is riding for all women in South Africa, to raise awareness about gender-based violence and funding for the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children while inspiring fellow female adventurers to live out their dreams
The Saartjie Baartman Centre provides a safe haven for women and children that have been abused. There is 24/7 security at the gate for peace of mind. It is a place for survivors to finally have a chance at finding independence and ultimately, freedom. Survivors are welcome to stay anything between 4 – 10 months. During this time, the women are offered a bunch of accredited courses and the opportunity to upskill and find a job
