CW Musicians' & Teachers' fundraising initiative
BIKES FOR THE PHILIPPINES
"The lack of public or private transportation is a significant contributing factor to the ever increasing school drop-out rate in rural Philippines. It is not unusual to have several public primary schools built around a town however, as the children get older the public elementary schools (grades 4 – 7) are fewer and further apart and the one public high school located a distance too great a hardship to get to for many.
Students may need to walk over 3 km (2 miles) one way on rough back roads with no access to or ability to pay for public transportation. Some walk greater distances. A family’s situation often requires a child to complete chores before and after school. The school day starts at 8 and goes through 5 making it necessary for some to walk to school in the dark and after school chores leaving them with little time to do homework at night.
In an effort to ease the hardship of simply getting to school, Bikes for the Philippines, in partnership with
Bikes for the World in Arlington, VA., was born. The program offers free bikes to qualifying students."
