Matt Damon in Africa. Photo via DATA.Matt Damon is currently working on a documentary called Running the Sahara. Over 80 days, three men will attempt to run from coast to coast across the Sahara desert. They will run the equivalent of 2 marathons a day. Damon will narrate the film.

The charitable component of the project is called H2O Africa – it is a clean water initiative. They hope to bring attention to the issues that Africa faces with clean water, as well as implement programs to improve the situation. One of the projects planned has multiple benefits. They will install a water purification system at a school, which of course benefits the students. However, it will also encourage the parents to bring their children to school. Education is just an added benefit!

African issues seem to be the cause as of late. They have certainly raised awareness with the public, starting with this ecorazzi.com writer. This is not Matt’s first trip to Africa. He was in Zambia in April on a trip organized by DATA.
