The Big Ride for Africa
In this unprecedented time of social distance, we launched a two week virtual mission to transform and even save the lives of children growing up in the world’s toughest places.
Congratulations to our 352 participants we covered 63,007.8 KM! We collectively travelled from Denver to Wormsley UK, traveling through Dublin, London, Reading, Slough, Amsterdam, Belgium, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique, Somalia, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
This year has been a tough one for all and we have had a busy time at Street Child. The Virtual Big Ride for Africa helped us to raise funds for the next phase of our response, our priority is to ensure those children who have missed out on education are able to return to school or if this isn't possible, provide children with at home learning materials.
