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.

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.”

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.

Do you want to study at a world-class university in the second-largest city in Austria? What about attending one of 38 Australian universities?

If you or any undergraduate, graduate, or postgraduate student you know is looking for a scholarship to study abroad, here are some exciting choices you don’t want to miss.

Some cover most fields of study, while others target very specific areas, like Mechanical Engineering, Environment, and Journalism. Most, however, stress areas of development African countries need in order to stimulate economic growth and alleviate poverty in the region.

You must act now, as some deadlines are approaching fast.

Having a difficult time making up your mind? Let us know when you do. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further assistance with your application process.

Student volunteer interns who successfully completed phase 1 of our Iduka Africa Pilot Project (iAPP) can request their certificate of participation by contacting their regional coordinator. You may need it when applying for some of these scholarships.
