Bikes for Education

Philippine studentsYour donated bikes are keeping kids in school in the Philippines. The Department of Education recognizes the importance of a bicycle as transportation to school

Bikes for the Philippines signed an MOU with DepEd making a partnership to deliver bikes to deserving student-beneficiaries throughout the Philippines official. DepEd is helping BfP identify and reach students in remote, rural areas.

BfP started in 2010 under the supervision of Joel Uichico. The initial project was started in Bohol at Baclayon National High School. This year they are expanding into Maribojoc. 50 bikes were also recently delivered to students on the island of Cebu.

Through this partnership Uichico hopes to be able to expand the project to more islands, reaching more students, and lowering the national drop-out rate in schools.
