Kenyan health workers now cycling

16 September 2014

Bike4Care Kenya

25 more health workers in Kenya are now cycling in stead of walking. They visit patients in a specific area and provide counceling, first aid, signal (new) symptoms and illnesses, and refer to specialists where needed.  By equiping the health workers with bicycles, they can travel faster and futher and reach out to more patients. The health workers are trained in basic maintenance and repairs of the bicycle. For this project we get support from Impulsis and other donors. For more information about this project see the Bike4Care project page. To support this programme the support page.

CooP-Africa distributes 78 bicycles to small entrepreneurs in Kenya. Many Africans don't have enough money to buy a bicycle in one go, but do have a vision on how they can use a bicycle to improve their livelihood. These people can now apply for a bicycle on credit via CooP-Kenya which they can pay off in instalments. For farmers, traders, bicycle taxis, waste collectors with bicycles, water vendors, etc, the bicycle is a tool to cycle out of poverty and improve their wellbeing. With your donation of € 180 we can add a bicycle to the revolving fund. Transfer your donation to SNS Bank account number: in the name of 'Stichting Cycling out of Poverty', IBAN: NL68 SNSB 0906146356, Swift code: SNSBNL2A or go to the support page
