BIKES 4 AFRICA
Bikes4Africa is jole rider’s flagship programme in support of its mission:
to change lives through education
AND NOW, THE PROGRAMME ITSELF IS CHANGING
More news on the changes happening will be posted here soon.
The purpose of these changes however is to:
Recover MORE bikes from around the UK and Ireland
Process MORE bikes through our partner workshops
Deliver MORE bikes to schools in rural Africa
Open the programme in MORE African destinations
And all to get MORE children in Africa to school by bike
BIKES CHANGE LIVES, their lives and the lives of so many others!
THE REASON BIKES ARE NEEDED IN AFRICAN SCHOOLS
Many African children live in remote communities, a long way from their nearest school.
Without reliable, affordable, motorised transport the only way they can get to school is to walk.
In searing heat, their journey to education on foot is a daily epic mission.
Having a bicycle makes a world of difference for these children,
their families and also their communities.
Bikes4Africa refurbishes donated second-hand bikes and delivers them from the UK
to African schools, where they enable children to...
• get to school, and arrive on time, instead of late
• begin the school day alert, instead of exhausted
• stay for extra lessons at the end of the school day
• remain safe by travelling home from school in daylight
• and as a result of all of the above, reach higher academic achievement
CHECK BACK SOON
We will be updating this page as the developments happen.
We will also be posting details on our Facebook pages.
