I'm Nzuzo Mnikathi. I am 19 years old and until recently I had never travelled further than an hour from my home. Now I'm going where no other young black South African has gone before - the most unforgiving place on earth.
Nzuzo aims to reach 111 000 children for every

It takes $32 to change the life of a child.
How many children would you like to help?

The Unlimited Child Expedition team will begin their journey on January 9, 2012, travelling from Durban to Johannesburg to Santiago, the capital of Chile, then on to Punta Arenas, a port town on the edge of the Magellan Straits in the south of the country.
