This is an opportunity for you to DIRECTLY transform a child’s life.
Badge-A-Bike is a simple and special Gift Idea. It puts YOUR personal message on a bike you sponsor, which jole rider will ship and deliver to a school in West Africa. Once there, it will enable a child to get to school - on time, fresh and ready to learn. Your badged bike will end a child’s daily trek to school, walking for many hours in searing heat.
For so many children in Africa, a bicycle is the single most important thing to help them reach an education. There are schools, there are teachers, but far too few - meaning 1000's of children face long daily treks to school. For many that walk is simply too far!
Badge-A-Bike not only gets another child to school, it also connects YOU directly with their success.
Badge–A-Bike is a simple and special Gift Idea which can be used in different ways: a gift for you, to empower a child, in YOUR name a gift for a loved one, a friend or relative, in THEIR name a birthday, anniversary or Christmas gift or a tribute to a lost one – a lasting memorial of someone special
The gift of Badge-A-Bike comprises: A bike being DELIVERED to a child needing an education for their future YOUR personal message printed on a numbered badge we affix to that bike An INVITATION to jole rider’s Container Loading Day to see the bike loaded for Africa And a gift CERTIFICATE to keep: Naming the school to which the bike will be delivered Giving the date your Badged Bike will be shipped to Africa Showing an image of your printed badge with your personal message Including a letter from jole rider in Africa thanking you for the difference YOU have made
These are the children who, with an education, will become the future...

In time, it is these children who will change their countries; they who will change their continent. Not us, but them. And with Badge-A-Bike we can do our bit to help them. And thanks to people just like YOU, we can do this - working together. Jon Snow
