Our Programmes We R.I.D.E.
Our Ride to School Initiative aims to ensure that as many children as possible in Africa are able to transport themselves to school thereby making sure that the school is brought closer to them. This initiative will take us in to the hinterlands of Africa where children hitherto are used to trekking long distances just to be able to get to school. This leaves them weak and tired and most times inattentive at school. We can improve their situations by introducing basic mobility to many of them through the provision of bicycles
The Ride to Save Initiative is targeted at ensuring that health professionals especially in the hinterlands are able to attend to the teeming health needs of the various populations as quickly as possible with the most basic means of transport - bicycles. This initiative will see us empowering doctors, nurses and midwives with bicycles so that they can save lives by getting to cases on time
It is our belief that if the most basic forms of transportation are provided the people, no matter how disadvantaged, their quality of life will be greatly enhanced. It is for this reason we have evolved the Ride to Life initiative. This is an empowerment programme for artisans, farmers and market women which will enable them cover whatever distance to ensure they access to sources of raw materials and markets with bicycles. Thus, their quality of life will be enhanced and poverty-induced mortality would be reduced
RAISE young African children by bringing education closer to them through the provision of basic mobility – bicycles.
INTERVENE in the fight against needless high mortality in remote areas due to the late arrival of health workers to the site of crisis by providing bicycles.
DEVELOP the spirit of enterprise in and EMPOWER artisans, farmers and market women by taking them closer to their places of work with bicycles.
ENGAGE in the development of the young mind and body by promoting wellness and sports through regular cycling.
