Cycle For Education

7 Apr

Are you ready to pedal? If so, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to cycle for education in the next 2 1/2 years.

Jolandie Rust passing through Aggeneys, a small mining town in Northern Cape, South Africa.

As our African pilot project embarks on its fundraising adventure, we invite all to join Jolandie Rust as she circumnavigates Africa on her bike.

Jolandie today announced her  African circumnavigation solo bike ride to benefit Iduka and its campaign to promote and raise funds for girls’ education in Africa.

Jolandie will be undertaking this feat completely unsupported in her attempt to be the first women to solo circumnavigate the world’s second largest continent on a bicycle.

“I want to inspire people to follow their dreams and encourage girls to dream with their hearts,” Jolandie said. “Partnering with Iduka on this 2 1/2 year, 40,000 kilometers journey, will allow me to emphasize to the girls I’ll meet along the way that their dream of a better future for themselves and for Africa starts with education.”

Do you want to join Jolandie and Iduka on our adventure to raise funds and awareness about girls’ education in Africa? There are plenty of opportunities and all are welcome to join us. We’ll be happy to have you involved!… and if you want to give us a push, please donate now or join our fundraising efforts on CrowdRise.

    I am happy we have a Goodwill Ambassador and I pray she comes to the Pearl of Africa, Uganda! We welcome her and we are ready with our Matooke and Ground Nuts for her to feed on and gain the lost energy.

    Thank you for the fundraising drive and Uganda is ready to contribute to this noble cause.

    Hey Jolandie,

    I was excited when I received the email about your aim for circumnavigate Africa, therefore I confer to you my full participation in the project. You are highly welcomed in Uganda as we give African girls a meaningful life.

    Jolandie’s bike – all ready to go!…Tomorrow April 27 Jolandie Rust will be setting off from Cape Town to begin her 2 1 2 year circumnavigation cycle around Africa. Of course today is full of last minute preparation and family goodbyes the road ahead will be a long and difficult one but Jolandie with Iduka will be making such a difference to those she meets along the way… What does one take on such an adventure?
