It’s not uncommon for children to face a 12 mile (20km) round-trip to school.
This often results in children being exhausted before class has even started.
42% of African school children will leave school early, with about one in six leaving before Grade 2.
Bicycles play an essential role in keeping children in education, especially as they get older and have to travel further afield for secondary school. A bicycle can cut journey times by as much as 75% and means that students can travel in safety to and from school.
With a bicycle students have more time and energy to focus on their studies!
