This is one of the highlights of the adventure. As with all the rallies we organise, it was important to us to help the children in the country we were in. This is why participants in the Argentina Trophy will experience a “charity day” working with children. Désertours and the Children of the Desert charity have been working together for 10 years and so it seemed right that Children of the Desert should be responsible for this new charity project. The charity therefore made contact with several Argentine charities and decided to partner with the “Night Flight” organisation created by the family of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
This charity works in disadvantaged areas of Buenos Aires, supporting families and children experiencing difficulties. Thanks to their work since 2003, many centres have opened, meaning that a good number of families have been helped. We are counting on you, the trophyists, to write the next chapter in their story and thereby allow their work to progress even further!
