UUZILO IS CURRENTLY EXCEPTING NOMINATIONS FOR 2019 EXPEDITIONS
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING, OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM THIS EXPERIENCE, PLEASE CONTACT UUZILO.
Uuzilo offers extended motorcycle expeditions in Africa to aid those recovering from grief and trauma. Due to the physical and emotional endurance required for motorcycle travel in Africa, participants must be nominated by a licensed mental health professional.* Uuzilo recognizes some individuals recovering from grief and trauma may have lost their perceived strength, or may be unable to obtain counseling. Our goal is to help those recover their fortitude and, in some cases, assist with gaining a professional evaluation. To request a nomination form, or inquire about assistance receiving an evaluation, please contact Uuzilo.
Uuzilo accepts nominations for U.S. citizens who have experienced a sudden, traumatic and unexpected life-altering event resulting in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or profound grief. In consultation with mental health advisors Uuzilo will review nominees’ qualifications including: mental and physical health evaluation, personal history, trauma experience, and motorcycle ability. Trauma or grief may be the result of:
- combat/armed conflict
- domestic abuse
- natural disaster
- health diagnosis/terminally ill
- death of a loved one
- loss of job
- loss of marriage
- other traumatic, life-altering event
Individuals must be in possession of, or be able to obtain, a valid license to operate a motorcycle. Experience, overall fitness, and ability operating a motorcycle will also be considered.
*IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO OBTAIN AN EVALUATION — FOR ANY REASON — OR WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS WHETHER AN UUZILO EXPEDITION IS RIGHT FOR YOU, PLEASE CONTACT UUZILO
