Hi everyone! I’m happy to share some exciting news about my next expedition, Project EVA (“EVA” is short for Electric Vehicle Africa). In early 2019, I’ll embark on a year-long journey to be the first person to drive a full electric vehicle (EV) around the African continent, proving it can be done!
Project EVA is so much more than an adventure of a lifetime. Swapping hiking boots for an EV, the expedition will build awareness about sustainable transportation and renewable generation in response to Africa’s rapid urban population growth, energy, and transportation needs.
During Crossing Africa, I witnessed first-hand the growing need for transportation and access to energy. My next expedition will shine a spotlight on the value of alternative technologies, and how they can help fulfill our transportation and energy needs. Yes, they exist and work!
In the coming weeks, my team and I will have more exciting news to share about #ProjectEVA. I’ll post updates here on my website and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
THANK YOU all for following along and supporting me on my Crossing Africa journey. I can’t wait to embark on this next one with you. Together, we’ll inspire young Africans and the world to think big and long-term about the limitless possibilities of sustainable innovation.

I spent a wonderful few days away to Muskoka, Woodfield to experience My Life Is Art retreat whereEmmanuel Jal lead a group of inspired listeners of his well thought out wisdom on leadership and self development. We enjoyed luxury tents in the forest with the help and support of the Woodfield team who accommodated us. We woke up early every morning to go on muted nature walks or runs followed with YAYA dancing which is a great way for you to feel good and relaxed for the rest of the day.
You can find more details about Emmanuel on his website at www.mylifeisart.org
