Bikes4Africa Campaign

21st Sep 2018

Strabane Academy are on-board with the Bikes4Africa Campaign during Recycle Week 2018 (24th-30th September). The theme of this years Recycle Week is:

Recycling. We do. Because it matters.

Bikes4Africa refurbishes donated second-hand bikes and delivers them from the UK to African schools, where they enable children to:

• get to school, and arrive on time, instead of late
• begin the school day alert, instead of exhausted
• stay for extra lessons at the end of the school day
• remain safe by travelling home from school in daylight
• and as a result of all of the above, reach higher academic achievement

The types of bike that are being requested are the more sturdy, durable type of bike like a mountain bike as the terrain is quite rough and uneven.
