Sarah and Murray Kent's Fundraising Page
My father, Murray, and I are supporting World Bicycle Relief, an organization providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles, with a personal fundraiser.
We are doing WBR's Africa Tour in May 2013 in Lusaka, Zambia in conjunction with our journey from Victoria Falls in Zambia, to the shores of Lake Milawi. On our personal journey, our mission is to ride approximately 1500kms, self supported on bikes to raise awareness of the importance of transport to aid increased quality of life to the African communities. For more information on this, please see our website: http://projectafricaride.tumblr.com/
The money raised through my fundraiser helps to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa; connecting them with education, healthcare and economic opportunities.
World Bicycle Relief is currently working to provide 50,000 bicycles to students (70% girls), teachers and educational workers in rural Zambia and Zimbabwe. For $134 we can provide a World Bicycle Relief bicycle to a student in need. Every donation helps.
Our goal was to reach $13,400 which will provide 100 bikes to the community. We've now raised this to $15,900, which is the additional $2,500 to train mechanics in the field.
Thanks for your support!
