This is one of our signature community upliftment interventions, run entirely by our group’s employees on a volunteer basis.
Bikes are provided to children in poor communities adjacent to conservation areas in which ERP is involved. These children struggle to regularly attend school, because of the difficulties they have in physically getting there, often having to walk miles in both directions. ERP provides the bicycles together with a monitored attendance program, both to ensure that the bikes are used for the intended purpose by the beneficiaries, and to track their performance at school. The bicycles are also used to create awareness about the need for conservation. These images and the videos on the following 2 pages collectively showcase our most recent ERP bike deliveries, in October and November 2019.
