Transaid’s key programmes currently underway include professional driver training activities in Ghana, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia – more than at any time previously in Transaid’s history – plus ongoing work with the FIA Foundation and FIA to establish a national helmet coalition for motorcycle riders in Kenya. Transaid is also working hard to secure donor funding for the next phase of its bicycle ambulance project in Zambia, which has been proven to dramatically reduce severe malaria mortality in children under six.
At the end of last year, Transaid launched a three-day London to Paris Cycle Challenge which will depart Greenwich on 22nd September 2023. With almost 50 percent of places already taken, the charity is inviting teams and individuals to join them on this four-day bucket-list adventure. Readers can find out more and register for this challenge here.
Transaid is also currently promoting its silver jubilee 2.5 challenge, encouraging supporters to get involved by holding their own fundraising activities around the number ‘25’. This could be anything from baking 25 cakes in aid of Transaid and selling slices to colleagues – to walking, cycling or sports challenges, whether it be 25 miles, 25 laps or something done consistently over 25 days, find out more here.
