Bikes for Mirembe Cottage


This is my wife with the beautiful girls from Mirembe Cottage near Jinja Uganda.  We are embarking on another trip to Uganda and wanted to make it so these girls have as many advantages as possible in their lives.  I don't like "Aid" and I don't like non-sustainable endeavors.  

I would like to buy these guys some bicycles to help them get around and do all the things Africans do with bicycles.  Transportation of people and things, all sorts of things.  Carry water.  Carry the rider to school.  Carry the burden of shopping at the market. 

As the girls move to the new home they will be further away from everything and will need to carry things further.  Can you help them carry these things?  For $60 I can get them a bicycle locally.  One that can be maintained locally and supports a local business, as well as these wonderful girls.  

There are 27 Girls and also some staff and missionairies that help.  More bicycles means more help, every day.  I'd like to get as many bicycles as possible.  If we have left over funds, they will go to building/finishing/moving-into Mirembe Cottage.  https://www.facebook.com/mirembecottage/


If you read their stories, and are compelled to help, I give you thanks.
