Earlier today, the Malawi High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Dr Thomas Bisika, presided over the departure ceremony of the Pedal With A Purpose riders.
"I wish the riders the best of luck on their ambitious cycle ride. I’m very happy that through this project, so many Malawians based in the UK are supporting this event. This in turn enables Think Malawi to fund education projects which are run by Malawian organisations, a virtuous circle which benefits thousands of children in Malawi. I hope that the British public will give their support as well to this worthy endeavour."
About Pedal With a Purpose
Pedal With a Purpose is a team of four intrepid riders who will cycle 500 miles from London To Glasgow over six days. The riders are paying for the costs of the ride themselves. So far they have raised over £4,000 for Think Malawi’s education projects in Malawi, and they hope to increase this total before the end of the ride. Click here to help the team with a donation.
About Think Malawi
The organization works hand in hand with Malawians to improve access to quality education, allowing them to fulfil their ambitions, improve their quality of life and contribute to Malawi’s development. Think Malawi is a UK based charity (UK reg. charity no. 1141352) dedicated to supporting educational projects in Malawi.
It is a team of knowledgeable and dedicated trustees and volunteers who operate the charity, this enables over 90% of all donations to go direct to the education projects in Malawi which they support.
Since forming in 2011, they have worked hand in hand with various education projects to deliver the maximum possible impact for the beneficiaries, the children and young people of Malawi.
Projects they have funded include provision of textbooks, classroom construction, a feeding programme, school water and sanitation projects and teacher training. In addition, we are very proud of our Her Education Matters programme, which enables girls to stay in school when they have their periods by providing them with reusable sanitary pads and changing rooms at school. Without these provisions, girls in Malawi miss up to five days of school per month.
