Bikes for rural schoolchildren in Ghana

Bikes for rural schoolchildren in Ghana

Our aim is to buy bikes in Ghana so that rural kids in the remotest NW district can get to high school in Wa, the provincial capital.

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

Our aim is to buy bikes in Ghana, so that rural schoolchildren in the remotest NW district can get to high school in Wa, the provincial capital.
At present, some children are walking up to two hours each way just to get to school, because their families are poor farmers who cannot afford transport.
We will purchase the bikes from our partners in Ghana, who make excellent and tough bikes from locally sourced bamboo, also providing much-needed employment.
