Patterson’s blog: Donated cycles help pupils to get to school.
Donated cycles are helping pupils make their way to school and benefit from further educational opportunities. Children who are selected to attend the Community Day Secondary Schools can sometime find it difficult to get to the school as they are too far to walk to. This means they sometimes stay at home and then end up missing out on their education.
If they do end up walking, they are often too tired and worn out from the walking in order to concentrate.
A bike can travel four times the speed of a person which means that two hours of hard walking can turn into a much easier half an hour of brisk pedalling. It is also really fun for the orphans to use the cycles in order to get to schools as you can see by the delight in their faces in these pictures!
You can help to transform the lives of pupils like Peter and Ernest who approach their school days with smiles sustained through their cycles!
Moet school with the help of friends in England and around the world supports the orphans by giving them bicycles and the means to maintain them.
