World Bicycle Relief: How a Simple Bicycle Can Change Lives

A bike has transformed the life of 12 year old Tamara in Zambia

A bike has made a huge difference to Tamara’s life.

Tamara is just 12 years old. She is an orphan living with her grandmother in Zambia. Her life is simple, but certainly not easy. She rises at dawn, completing a host of chores before heading to school which is 2.5 miles away.

The incredible work of World Bicycle Relief

This year Tamara received a bike from World Bicycle Relief. She was one of 100 students at Kabulonga Primary School to receive one of the Buffalo Bikes.  Now she can get to school more easily and safely, saving valuable time and energy ready to learn and build a future. Find out more about how this bike transformed Tamara’s life in this heart-warming video:

It costs just £95 to put a bicycle into the hands of a school child like Tamara so for the price of new set of tyres you give a Buffalo Bicycle this Christmas and change a life. Not only that but anything you can give before the end of the year will be matched. Find out more on the World Bicycle Relief Website.
