A Cycling to School project started in Kisumu Kenya in October 2009. In this project bicycles are given out on credit to families with school going children. The rational is that many students in Africa have to walk long distances every day to get to school. After a walk of more than 10 km children are exhausted in class which influences their performance. Furthermore, expecially girls are dropping out because due to the time consuming walk to school, they don’t have enough time to take care of the domestic chores. The students say they now reach school quicker and less exhausted. Even though they have fallen down some times, they are happy with the bicycle. The students were very open in sharing the benefits and challenges of the bicycle in this project. Please have a look at the video in which the first group of students in this programme tell about their experiences with the bicycle.
