Give Bicycles to Zambian Children

FUNDED February 11 2019 – Thank You!

Education for children in Zambia is difficult to obtain. Zambian families face economic hardship, the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS, and an increasing population of orphans. In addition, to get to school children often have to walk up to three hours each way, putting themselves at risk for harassment, sexual abuse, and exhaustion.

Girls in particular spend more time working to support their families than any other Zambian demographic, collecting fuel, hauling water, caring for siblings, and supporting household businesses. As a result, they often drop out of school altogether. For Zambian girls, being unable to complete secondary education is disastrous — linked to early marriages, early childbearing, extreme poverty, increased infant mortality, and shorter life expectancy.

A simple solution allows children to travel to school swiftly, safely, and with less fatigue: a bicycle. A typical child’s two- to three-hour walk is reduced by a bicycle to a ride of just forty-five to seventy-five minutes, leaving the child less vulnerable to attack en route and also with more time and energy for schoolwork and household chores. The bicycle is also an asset to the family, improving access to markets and healthcare and enhancing the perceived value of the child’s education.

Your generous click today helps fund the purchase, assembly, and delivery of a sturdy new bicycle, and contributes to training and equipping a local bicycle mechanic so that the magic doesn’t disappear with the first flat tire.
