OUR NEW cycling INITIATIVE takes oFF!
Our wonderful volunteers helped with assembling the bikes, testing them and assisting with free lessons for both boys and girls.
Some of the events captured on photos you can see below.
With our Green Bicycle project we are introducing the kids at Yida camp to cycling, offering many young girls an opportunity to enjoy cycling and hopefully use their new skills to get them out and about and ease the troubles of travelling long distances every day to collect water from wells.
Many of those girls have to do twice daily (or more) long trips to fetch water and carry heavy Jerrycans on their heads. We hope to provide paniers for each bicycle (eventually hopefuly bicycle trailers too) to help them in carrying water and other supplies.
Learning to ride a bicycle will greatly assist them.
