This month, Executive Chairman Stephen Grant cycled 150KM across Kenyan Maasailand. The cycle was across remote, untouched areas and Stephen faced combined inclines higher than Mount Kilimanjaro!
Although Stephen is an avid cyclist and cycles for fun, there was a deeper purpose to this trip. He took part to raise money for The Hoja Project, which he has supported for a number of years. Hoja are a Tanzanian NGO who work alongside COCO, a UK-based NGO, to provide sustainable solutions to the issues preventing children from being able to access education. One way in which this has been achieved is through Hoja Secondary School, a community school for students who are unable to afford the cost of government secondary school.
For the past three years, graduates from Hoja Secondary have achieved the highest results of 173 schools in the region, beating many expensive fee-paying schools in the process! The school is also completely self-sustainable, meaning that it can continue to offer top quality education to students long into the future!
