Bikers for Barrydale

New Year’s Day saw the jumpstart of NPO Fund Social Good’s Bikers School Africa, a monthly ride from Cape Town to a rural destination to support initiatives that address the root causes of violence, inequality, corruption, hunger and climate change. On January 1, bikers from Cape Town, Switzerland and Swellendam drove along Route 62 to raise funds for NPO Net Vir Pret in Barrydale. Net Vir Pret works to aid the development of 150 children who live in Smitsville, a township in Barrydale. The bikers opened their hearts and pockets to raise over R10 000 that will fund education programmes for children in Smitsville. The next Bikers School Africa ride is scheduled for Saturday February 5. For more information, contact JP on 082 789 2915 or Elizabeth Beer on or PICTURE: Wild Dog Photography
