Now that the girls are getting older, more and more are able to drive the ‘motorcycle’. It’s just a small one, just a bit bigger than a moped, but it gives them the independence they need. A few of the girls study at colleges or universities and thus don’t follow the same schedule as the younger ones. That makes it quite challenging to have to bring and pick them up from school. There are also girls who play sports after school. They too need a ‘motorcycle’ in order to get back home since there is no good public transport in place.
Three out of the six motorcycles we currently own are very old and unreliable. We worry one of the girls might get stranded somewhere halfway and that they end up all alone. That – together with the fact that the need for motorcycle’s has grown now that the girls get older – really made us think it’s time to buy two extra motorcycles. It would really help us to solve these problems.
UPDATE: We have received donations for two motorcycles; great! We have taken steps to buy them right away and we have been able to buy two bikes by now. It feels like such a relief that we can let the girls go out on the road with reliable motorcycles. We are very thankful!
