The We Yone Child Foundation has recently received a generous contribution of bicycles from the Wegdam Foundation in the Netherlands. These bicycles will play a crucial role in assisting children in the Karena District of Sierra Leone, particularly those residing in rural areas who face long journeys of 3 to 8 miles to reach their educational institutions.

This donation of bicycles is expected to have a profound impact on the academic achievements of these children. By providing them with easier and faster access to education centers, they will be able to attend school regularly and reap the benefits of a high-quality education.

The We Yone Child Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children in Sierra Leone, expressed their immense gratitude for this contribution. They firmly believe that providing bicycles to these children will not only improve their educational opportunities but also empower them to break free from the cycle of poverty and contribute to the development of their communities.

The partnership between the Wegdam Foundation and the We Yone Child Foundation exemplifies the power of collaboration and generosity in making a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable children. It serves as a testament to the significance of international cooperation in addressing global challenges and promoting sustainable development.
