Walking long distances to and from school is an experience I know too well. Most students wake up at the crack of dawn to track for 20 kilometers or more to school, which is normal in Zimbabwe's poorest rural communities. Children as young as 5 years old have to walk to ECD centers more than 5 kilometers away. Getting to school exhausted and late with an expectation to learn at the same pace and aptitude as the students staying near the school. Cycle for education campaign is dedicated to solving the challenge of long distances that cause children to dropout of school. It is aimed at achieving the following in Zimbabwe:
1) Reduce school dropouts in Secondary schools.
2) Improve attendance, giving students more learning time.
3) Improve performance of students at school as a result of getting more learning time.
4) Improve access to education.
Together let’s contribute and solve this challenge of distance that riddles poor rural communities.
