Donating a Bicycle to Needy Kids in Sri Lanka
By Your Name, partnered with SamajaSathkara.lk
Many children in Sri Lanka face considerable challenges in getting a good education. Some children live many miles from the nearest school, making walking to school very difficult, if not impossible. Without access to quality schooling, children have less chance of emerging from poverty and their chances of a happy, prosperous future are greatly diminished. This is why we launched this “Donate a Bicycle” project.

We plan to raise €1000 – €2000
Our Project Plan
Many children in developing nations like Sri Lanka are forced to abandon their education when they cannot get to school regularly. By donating to this campaign, you are ensuring that children can get to school and receive the education they need. We are planning to donate 25+ bicycles and tricycles to kids located in Anuradhapura, Monaragala, Ampara & Putlam Districts.
In some rural area in Sri Lanka, school kids have to walk long ways (about 5 km or more) to reach their schools as there are no public transport or school buses. Therefore, having a bicycle is a dream of many children. With your donations, we will be helping few of these school kids to achieve their dream.
- Mountain Bicycle – €76 – €106
- Small Bicycle – €37 – €43
- Tricycle – €16 – £19
+ Transportation and other costs (this will change according to the project location, distance between village and the main town)
