Feedback from One of Our Recipients

The donation of these bikes makes a major impact on an organization’s ability to help their clients. Wanjiku Kironyo, the director of Maji Mazuri International in Nairobi, Kenya, writes:

“Maji Mazuri International would like to express our deepest appreciation for the bicycles received from Tour d’Afrique. The bicycles are an invaluable resource to our work. Now, we may more easily deliver medicines to our children at the Maji Mazuri Children’s Center. Transportation to and from and communication with the Farm Project at Kiserian will be substantially facilitated. The Mathare Maji Mazuri Youth Group will now be able to overcome the financial and time constraints forthwith detracting from their efforts at community outreach and cooperation with the larger Nairobi community.

We are also very grateful to those members of the Tour who participated in the Mathare Valley Tour. The cornerstone of social and economic development is awareness. The persons who attended the Mathare Valley have undoubtedly found themselves changed. While the living conditions that they witnessed in the slum are, to say the least, daunting, it is our hope that they were also touched by the hope and dignity that the residents of Mathare Valley gain from participation in the Micro Finance, Headstart and Youth Group projects. As the representatives of Tour d’Afrique met various members of the aforementioned projects, they can rest assured that that extension of interest and friendship further encourages those members. Thank you again for your friendship and generosity! Maji Mazuri wishes you the best of luck in your future pursuits!”
