Brighter Future purchased and provided a further 11 cycles to the children of Shanti Nicas Campus. Yes they are going to school by bus, but it is an extra life skill to learn to ride bicycles on the roads of the village, all the children are very happy and excited. Yesterday BFDT director, Victor Parisipogula, handed over the bicycles to the children. they are very happy and thankful to Brighter Future Development Trust (BFDT).Each bicycle cost Rs 5500, which in GB Pounds is around £57, so it is a considerable investment in the children’s future.Brighter Future gives every child that comes into our homes, not only a healthy diet, education, and the medical help that they require, we also equip them for life, giving them the variety of skills that they will need when it is time for them to leave our care, whether that is skills to ready them for employment, or simply the skills for life … like riding a bicycle. The newly concreted roads across the site will make riding around the site much safer.
