In the Spring of 2011, Julian Monroe Fisher, will set out upon his most ambitious expedition to date.

Entitled EQUATORIA – A WALK ACROSS AFRICA, the expedition will have Fisher walking west from the Indian Ocean coastal town of Pemba, Mozambique, towards the coastal town Lobito, Angola, at the Atlantic Ocean. The more than 4,000 mile walk will take him across the landscape comprising parts of the territories of the African countries of Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.

The expedition attempt represents ‘the first US American to walk coast to coast across the African continent from Mozambique to Angola and is believed to be ‘the first recorded solo expedition by an explorer ever attempted along this specific route’.

The primary objective of EQUATORIA – A WALK ACROSS AFRICA is to bring global awareness to the efforts of the Mines Advisory Group - MAG International and their work in current and former conflict zones to reduce the threat of death and injury from remnants of conflict. Attention garnered by this ambitious attempt to walk coast to coast across the African continent shall also bring attention to those countries that are signatories to the Ottawa Treaty and those countries that have not signed the treaty including the United States, Russia and China, all permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

One Step at a Time... 

"Poli-Poli", slowly-slowly, is a Swahili term that Julian Monroe Fisher learned the hard way upon his first attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Each day his guide reminded him that the only way to reach a goal is by taking, slowly-slowly , ‘one step at a time’.

As time rushes by and most of us have no more patience to enjoy every sandwich while the vast majority of the people on this planet still live off less than one dollar a day, we invite you to become a part of this expedition across Africa and donate one step. One step somewhere between the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic. One step across the highlands, through the valleys, across the large cities and over the borders of Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, DR Congo and Angola. One step at USD 1.35 (includes 35 cents payments processing fees).

All donations go towards establishing The Bunkeya Cultural Village (BCV) in Bunkeya, DR Congo as well as other community projects to be determined in Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Angola.
