Another container loaded for BEN, Namibia
Another container has been loaded and is now on its way to The Bicycling Empowerment Network (BEN) in Namibia. On arrival the bikes will be shared between several of the 32 Bicycling Empowerment Centres (workshops) set up by BEN throughout the country. Most are in rural areas where public transport is non existent and where use of a bicycle will massively reduce journey times normally made on foot, improve the effectiveness of health workers and help generate and sustain local employment opportunities. Please see http://bennamibia.org/about-us-2/ for more information about the impact of bicycles in Namibia.
Many thanks as always for the many individuals, groups and organisations who donated the bicycles to us and trust that you will delighted at the power of a humble bicycle has to improve lives in Africa.
