Virtual fundraiser ride success!
An update and huge thank you to all those who donated and did a ride to support The African Impact Foundation and One Bike Tanzania during our virtual fundraiser in June and July. While we weren’t able to run any tours this summer, we decided to use the moment to shine some light on a couple of the wonderful organizations we work with in east and southern Africa. We raised enough money to help them purchase more bikes and cover their costs to continue to operate during these difficult times. Success!
In case you are just hearing about this now – here is a little background and feedback from the organizations about the donations made.
The African Impact Foundation works to improve the community through long term change designed to empower and educate communities. One way they do this is through the donation of bicycles to those in the community, giving people the freedom to meet their daily needs like going to school, getting food or supplies and increasing the overall enrichment of their lives.
“Because of your donation the livelihoods of children in Livingstone are changing through improved access to education, healthcare, water, and food.”-Sarah at African Impact Foundation
One Bike Tanzania is a bicycle and repair shop that fixes bikes for the local community, donates bikes to those in need, offers youth mechanic training programs and cleans up the local community by collecting waste. They are an integral part of their local community, working towards a positive future. They have an Kilimanjaro to Ngorongoro cycling event scheduled to happen in September 21-September 27 . You can learn more about this event and how you can support it on their facebook page.
“We will always remember you as our hero during these difficult times.” -Goodluck Minja at One Bike Tanzania
If you didn’t get a chance to donate or do a ride you can still support them by donating through our page to help buy bicycles, spreading the word about these organizations or by contacting them directly.
