Situation

Rural school children in our partner countries of Gambia, Sierra Leone and Ghana often walk long distances to school! This impacts adversely upon their school attendance and academic performance.

Solution

Working with our African partners in select schools, we have conducted an encouraging pilot project with 120 children. We have identified a further 1,500 schoolchildren to receive a bike and maintenance training. Teachers will monitor school children's (girls & boys) attendance rates and academic performance (against a control and baseline) to measure the impact of access to a bike on their lives and well being.
