Our aid projects
Combining the pleasant with the useful – help from bikers for people in need
School desks and expansion of the Balaka School
Our first aid project took place in 2006 with the motto “School desks for ZAMBIA – BALAKA SCHOOL”. School desks for Zambia – a private campaign by 2-Rad-Center Eilenburg and its bikers.
Some bikers have been driving through Zambia with locally rented motorbikes since 2001 – and they didn’t just get to experience the beaufitul landscapes but they also saw that children in schools were sitting on the floor and had to go to school without any books and pencils.
The result of the pictures and the reports from 2001 was that in 2006 there were several bikers who wanted to combine the pleasant – vacation in Africa with a motorcycle – with the useful – help for the children in Zambia. The spectrum of those involved is colorful: police officers, master craftsmen, a biker attorney up to the central figure – our “motorcycle dealer of trust” – Uwe Klingenberger – around whom everything connects.
At the season’s opening – the so called “Drachenfest” – the fundraising campaign started and the participants in the school construction in Zambia were introduced to the bikers present; on this day we were able to book initial donations for this campaign.
This relief operation is managed by Burkard Will, who has lived in Zambia for about 20 years.
All items for the school facility are manufactured locally, so that this measure also leaves the money in Zambia and enables other local people to earn an income.
How you can get involved
Donations can be put into the collection box at 2-Rad-Center Eilenburg, Wurzener Straße 2a, 04838 Eilenburg, every small amount helps!
