Our mission for 2023
Together with you, we would like to collect 100,000€ in donations to support disadvantaged children and young people in South Africa on their educational path. We can only achieve this goal with a large community, maximum attention and when everyone starts moving. Therefore, we would like to cover 100,000 kilometres in 2023 together with you, in line with the donation amount.

Eagles Nest Community Centre -
A follow-up project of the Eagle’s Nest Kindergarten in Grabouw (South Africa)
Next Step: Miles4Education raises funds to support the construction of a community centre adjacent to the Eagle’s Nest Kindergarten in Grabouw (near Cape Town). Our common goal is to support children throughout their entire educational journey and not only during their early childhood. The following sub-projects will be realised: after-school care, a computer lab, a library and a gardening centre. The funds raised through Miles4Education will be used primarily for the construction of an after-school care area as well as a sports centre.

That’s us – Florian (left) and Yannik (right), the initiators of Miles4Education. We met at the University Católica in Lisbon, where we are both currently completing our Master’s in Management with a specialisation in Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Impact. The latter is much more than a specialisation for us. We live impact, we want to improve the world and give something back. We believe in leveraging sports, innovation and the latest technologies to identify opportunities to help socially disadvantaged people and reduce the impact on our environment. We have been living this for some time now and have therefore started a social initiative (Yannik) and founded an NGO (Florian). You can find out more about our commitment so far within the “About Us” section.
