Commencing this August 2016, Tim Agius founder and creator of Momentum Venture, will embark on a 9 month solo cycling expedition through the Silk Road, Central Asia. His goal is to empower a number of undeveloped communities by providing resources through the form of micro loans.
The cycling and camping trip will take him through the Himalayas, Pamir mountains and many remote areas throughout Nepal, India, China, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. He will be documenting and creating a web series of the trip, including processes and final impact, in collaboration with Amplified Whispers, a creative education and storytelling platform in the developing world.
Momentum Venture is an organization that empowers women in undeveloped communities by providing materials to hand make quilts. The quilts are sold internationally with 100% of the profits going back to support the women and their families. The first project started in Kathmandu, Nepal earlier this year.
