Ugandan students often live more than 10 kilometres away from school. They walk this stretch twice a day, six days in a week. A long, time consuming hike that results in late coming and low concentration due to be washed-out of the 2-3 hour hike. But the biggest challenge is that this time consuming hike and the hours they have to spend in school clashes with the hours they are needed at home for household chores or support in income generation. Many times forcing students to leave school, drop-out and  face future without proper education. Not to speak about school girls being sexually harassed and exploited in the transportation sector. The solution is simple: affordable and efficient transport. With a bicycle students are faster and able to cover longer distances easily. The bicycles enables them to go to school and do their household chores and give them a fair chance to follow education and create opportunities for future.
