Paskolina rides to School
Paskolina travels 5 miles each way from her home to school. Before receiving her bike, she would wake at 5am to make it to school by 7am. She often ran to make it in time, but frequently reported late to class. With her new bike, Paskolina now has time to help her mother, arrives at school on time and is able to study when she returns home.
Transport and development go hand-in-hand. Virtually everything traded must be transported and almost everyone needs wheels to get to work or school. Simple, affordable transport generates wealth in developing countries, as well as saving lots of time and back-breaking work.
