Help a child in a developing country.
Provide valuable transportation for their much-needed education.

Your donation of $50 will provide a rural child with a sturdy bicycle equipped with a basket, carrier, lamp, lock and proudly displays the Rotary logo.

The Rotary Wheels for Learning Bicycle Distribution Program currently supports the children of Cambodia – one of the poorest nations in the world. Schools are few and far between. Many of the children have to walk up to 10 kilometers one way to attend school. Most parents can't afford the cost of school AND the transportation to get to school. As a result the child doesn't attend school at all. When provided with a Rotary Wheels for Learning bicycle, it makes attending school possible for a child. In most instances the recipient’s families also benefit. They use the bicycle outside school hours for the simple basics needed to survive day to day, such as going to the local market or a medical clinic.
Donors are provided with short biographical information and a photo of their sponsored child with their Rotary Bicycle. Please provide us with your email address if you have one so we can email you the photographs and forms of your sponored children. These will be sent by post if you do not have an email address.

In Canada, tax receipts will be issued for your donation. Donations of 50 or more bicycles greatly reduces the cost per bike.

A full description of the project is available upon request.
