Again, bicycles have been given out to students in the Bike4School programme in Uganda. Bicycles are a popular means of transport among students, but affordability is an issue. Under the Bike4School programme students can acquire a bicycle on a reduced rate, and "pay" part of it by performing well in school.

26 more health workers in Kenya have received Bike4Care bicycles. Kenya has a system of volunteer health workers, who visit patients in a specific area. These visits are mostly done on foot. By equiping the health workers with bicycles, they can travel faster and futher and reach out to more patients. For this project we get support from Impulsis, Achmea Foundation, and other donors. For more information about this project see the Bike4Care project page. To support this programme the support page.

CooP-Africa believes that capacitating bicycle mechanics enables them to improve their income. In Jinja District in Uganda 4 mechanics were trained to be bicycle mechanics. Most of them were already working as mechanic, but without proper training. Therefore, they were not able to fix more complex problems. Due to this training they can now increase their work and income. For more information about the Bike4Work projects, go to the Bike4Work project page. To support Bike4Work go to the support page.
