Thanks for your contributions to the recent Little x Little fundraiser which totaled $2,158 . This will go towards the purchase of 50 Buffalo Bicycles, helmets and safety vests for a secondary girls’ school. The Pedal Power for Kenyan Education program is now helping 300 students get to school, do better academically and to graduate.
Students, their parents and school staff appreciate the program. A note from Lydia A., Principal of St. Peter’s Buyosi Mixed Secondary School:
"GAP Kenya's work in the community is impressive. I have heard of the school feeding program, computer lab and bicycles donation to needy students. The projects have motivated students to go to school regularly. We're so excited that our school has been selected to benefit from a donation of quality bicycles to ease the transport of our learners.”
Pedal Power for Kenyan Education is half-way to 2023’s goal of 100 bicycles which will mean 35 free ones from Buffalo Bicycles!
We will keep you updated on progress of the program and look forward to your continued support.
Another 75 Buffalo Bicycles along with helmets, safety vests and tool kits have been added to the Pedal Power for Kenyan Education program. Your donations have helped provide a total of 250 bicycles and accessories. This school year the students will put a total of 500,000 miles on them. It's more than travelling to the moon and back!
Most important is that students will improve their attendance and academics. Girls especially appreciate that riding a bicycle to school is safer than walking 5 or more miles. Parents and school staff are thankful for your contributions that help their children.
Please keep Pedal Power in mind for Giving Tuesday, November 29. GlobalGiving will be adding $1,200,000 to the funds raised by participating organizations.
You’re helping to put smiles on the faces of many students in Busia County, Kenya.
Your support has enabled Grow Against Poverty to provide four high schools with a total of 175 Buffalo Bicycles, helmets, safety vests and tool kits. Students who are using these bicycles for school transportation are improving their academics and chances of a better life. Please continue to support Pedal Power for Kenyan Education to benefit more students.

Our sincere thanks,
Students, staff, parents and Grow Against Poverty volunteers
