Walking more than 10km to school ensures a lack of energy when sitting in the class or standing in front of it, so students can’t give their full attention to learning. CooP-Africa offers:
- bicycles on credit for students and teachers
- school activities to promote the use of bicycles and improve access to education
Bike4School projects create favourable conditions for school performance, and can improve access to education. Support CooP-Africa’s Bike4School and enable these students to improve access to education:
I use this bicycle to escort my two younger brothers to school every morning.

A bicycle is another teacher. A school without a teacher is like a home without a bicycle, because a student can’t understand without a teacher in class and even a student form very far can’t reach school earlier without a bicycle.
Basirika Anitah, student in Uganda
When I was in primary school, I walked to school every day. Those who were in secondary school used to pass me by on the way on a bicycle. I always dreamed to ride one to school one day myself. Now I am in S4 and I was given the opportunity to aquire a bicycle on credit. I now cycle to school every day, passing many primary school students on the way!
Daniel, student in Uganda.
