Our investment last year in some two-wheeled transport for Shalom Academy has paid off handsomely. Vitalis not only has a handy means of getting educational supplies and equipment to the school, he can also ride to the internet cafe to download all the school accounts and other documents for the charity and bring children to the clinic whenever there is an illness or accident at school.
The Honda bike has also been a godsend while sourcing all the building supplies needed for the construction of the three extra classrooms. Some of the materials have been sourced from the forest so the little bike is the only transport that can get there.
It’s also been comical to see the looks on locals’ faces when they see a white guy riding a bike with a black guy on pillion, bodo-boda style.
