Chikumbuso’s Pele-TON is a Winner!


Chikumbuso Gives Back!
Part of Chikumbuso’s Mission statement is to Remember to do for others… and that is what we did with a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief. 32 People rode and 52 attended the dinner at North Stonington’s WheelerLibrary.
Q and A
Part of our evening was spent interviewing Dave Neiswander the President of WBR. He shared with us the importance of bikes in the lives of students in Africa and why in particular a focus on girls. There was ashort WBR video of the great work being done in Western Kenya. Aaron, our Chikumbuso student, also shared what a difference a bike made in his ability to attend school and not give up due to the 2 hour walk he facedeveryday.
Great Community Event
Thank you all for your fabulous response to this event. We were able to make more that our goal of $10,000 ($12,000) and we could not have done it with out all of you pitching in. This is almost 100bikes to be given to students in Zambia. Imagine 100+ bikes given away to students who would never have dreamed of having a bike. You are changing lives!  Also a big thank you to Wheeler Libraryfor the use of their room, it was the perfect setting.
