88bikes Uganda 2008

Project Completed

Patongo Displaced Persons Camp, Pader, Uganda

88bikes Uganda, in partnership with the Global Youth Partnership for Africa

It was truly inspiring to see the outpouring of generosity when we announced the project in Uganda. We had extraordinary support from our sponsors, a great partnership with GYPA, and we were able to deliver 200 bikes to the kids in Patongo.

Thanks! Dan, Jared, and Nick

ABOUT PATONGO

Patongo is a camp for refugees of the Ugandan Civil war, which was orignally established as a temporary encampment for just a few hundred people, but which today is a small city with thousands of permanent residents. Many of the kids in Patongo have lost one or more of their parents, and our donation of bikes will have a lasting impact in making life in Patongo more enjoyable, while also providing a useful tool for many of the kids and their families. You can also learn more about the Patongo school and the children there by watching the 2007 Oscar-Nominated documentary War/Dance.

PARTNERS

We're partnering with some terrific friends this year: Filmmakers Sean and Andrea Fine introduced us to the school in Patongo and are assisting us with in-country logistics. Their film War/Dance discusses the lives and stories of these same kids. Check out this film in theaters now!

Our partner NGO for Uganda is the Global Youth Partnership for Africa (www.gypafrica.org). GYPA does some amazing work connecting youth in Africa with youth in the United States. We're thrilled to have them involved.

Finally, our friends at Medicine for Sick Children have also been very supportive of the effort this year.

THE GOAL

200 bikes for kids living in the Patongo, Uganda refugee camp.

THE KIDS

Orphans, refugees, former child soldiers, and street children ranging in age from 5-17.
