Cycling 4 Education.

Cycling 4 education was born as “klimmen voor Kakuma” (climbing for Kakuma) in 2017 when I started to climb mountains to raise funds for the Kakuma Project.

In 2020 my refugee student Mohammad and his sister Mobina joined me to cycle and raise funds for education in Kakuma. So they will this year. Our 300km trip will lead us to the Belgian coast.

Project Kakuma.

In 2015 Belgian teacher Koen Timmers shipped his own laptop to Kakuma Refugee Camp and started to teach refugees via Skype. The camp – based in Kenya – is home to 200,000 refugees who fled from war and hunger in several African countries. 55% of the refugees in Kakuma are children, only half of them attend school.

At this moment the project – endorsed by Charlize Theron, Jane Goodall and HRM Princess Esmeralda – unites teachers across 75 countries and has its 2 own Innovation Lab Schools an 4 educational programs.
