Epstone has travelled in Morocco, Nepal, Costa Rica, Malawi and Tibet . in each of these locales he has worked tirelessly to raise funds for the U.K. Teanage Cancer Trust.

Swiss-born Beat Schmid de Guneck is a life-long charter sailor who has retired to Bali.

In Bali, both men met and resolved to do what they could to aid an estimated 232,000 homeless children living on the streets of indonesia. And they decided what they could do best was to go walk barefoot on the roads of indonesia until they raise their targeted US$1 million.

Their fund raising got underway on April 20, 2011, when U.S. musician Carlton Smith performed a charity concert organized by Rotary District 3400 that raised an initial Rp. 34,731,000 (US$3,950).

The next phase of the campaign begins on June 5, 2011, where the two men will embark on a 30-day 550 km walk across Bali. The walk is intended to raise awareness for the plight of indonesia’s street children, collect pledges from interested parties around the world following them on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and their dedicated website [www.solemen.org]

Robert Epstone and Beat Schmid de Guneck will be joined on the entire Bail walk by another long-term Bali resident, Frenchman Daniel Chieppa and his family.

The three men leading the walk encourage interested people to join them on part or all of their barefoot walk by bringing pledges to their cause.
