The village of Michangulene is located in the administrative post of Changalene, in Maputo Province. It has more than two thousand inhabitants divided into two districts, Michangulene Sede and Mafavuca and in these neighborhoods there is no electric power since the house are far from the road where electric power boxes that distribute the power are located.
Also the school is also far from these neighborhoods where most of the population lives, whisch has some influence on the high dropout rates of the students, making the agriculture main source of subsistence.
Lack of transportation has been a major challenge for students at this administrative post. To get to school, they have to travel long distances, making it difficult for them to take advantage of the fact that they are already tired.
This project will cover students at Muchangulene Complete Primary School, located at the Changalane Administrative Post, where they study about 298 children.
With this campaign, it is intended to raise 25 bicycles, which will benefit students over 12 years old, who walk about 10km a day to access education. It is also intended to encourage beneficiaries not to drop out of school. By facilitating their access to school, we are somehow avoiding the problem of premature marriages.
A bicycle will be an important tool to reduce especially the time it takes to walk to school and it can help your families with their machamba trips.
This campaign will offer:
• 25 Bicycles
• Spare parts and accessories
• Basic training on bicycle care and maintenance
