Bikes For Africa
Watch the videos below to see the difference we have made!
The Young Lewisham Project isn’t only about helping the youth in our local community, we want to teach our young people how they can give back too.
For the past few years we have been receiving donated, unwanted bicycles from all over. The young people who come to the project work on these bikes and refurbish them to a good working order.
These bikes are then sent to Malawi in Africa. It may not sound a big deal but for the young people of Malawi it is a dream come true. They don’t just use the bikes to have fun they use them to make their difficult lives a whole lot easier!
In addition our young people learn an extremely valuable lesson that all of us could do with being reminded of from time to time: It really does feel good doing good for other less fortunate!
If you have an old bike lying around, don’t just put it outside and hope someone will come along and get rid of it for you. Bring it along to us or give us a call and we’ll come and get it.
