Bikes for Africa

Can you help my friend Natasha? 

She has 300 bikes ready to ship to Zambia, but has not been able to fund raise in the usual way because of COVID, so is still missing the funds to ship the container.

If we can raise $3000 then she can match that and the container will be on its way!

These bikes will be used as ambulances, taxis, school buses and the container will be converted into a workshop to offer vocational training to local youth.

Please check out her Hope Ignited webpage that gives you more information on the bikes for Zambia project.

“Hope Ignited is partnering with Nsobe Community School to bring its second container to Zambia. With the support of the Bicycle Empowerment Network (BEN), this container will be converted into a mechanic’s workshop located at Nsobe Community School. Local Zambians will run and own the business. 

There will be so many uses for the 300 bikes shipped. Ambulances (the closest clinic is 10km or 90 minutes of walking away), taxis (shops are 10km away) and to help children get to school (some kids walk 14km—almost two hours of walking—each way just to attend school). Older children from the school will also get vocational training at the workshop—giving them more opportunities for their future. The bicycles will provide many opportunities to rise above poverty’s .”
