2015 Bike Drive Schedule

2015 Alaffia Bike Drive Schedule


In rural areas of Togo, students walk up to 10 miles a day to attend school. There are no buses, and families cannot afford private transportation. As a result, school becomes very time consuming, and most students decide to quit school in order to fulfill their family obligations. In rural areas, less than 10% of high school-aged girls and only 16% of boys attend school (UNICEF). In 2004, Alaffia began collecting and sending used bicycles to Togolese students to encourage them to stay in and complete school. Now, with over 6,300 bicycles sent and distributed, we are seeing a real impact on exam scores and progress in rural schools.
Our 2015 bike drive season is off to a great start. We have collected over 180 bicycles. Please join us at one of our upcoming bike drives to donate a bike or bike parts and empower a life:
