Phedza Aphale is a national association, located in Beira, Sofala Province, promoting activities in Youth Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, Culture, Assistance and Social Inclusion, Health, Sports and Exchange between young people from different communities.

Some of these girls are orphans of parents and others their relatives live only from agriculture, pastoralism, and street sales, which means that they cannot always guarantee their daughter's school sustainability.
These girls from the communities of Munhava and Manga, they travel distances of 5 to 12 km on foot to get to school, so they are forced to wake up at dawn to help with homework and when go to school or to the agricultural course, they already arrive tired and without concentration to watch the lessons or even end up missing, causing them to have poor school performance.
Rarely they take public transportation, as their parents or family members cannot afford it, as it would ultimately affect the family's own livelihood. Even when they have to go to the fields, they travel long distances, because the fields are far from their homes.
The campaign intends to collect 14 bicycles for these girls, where the bicycle will be able to change their lives significantly, since they will be more willing to absorb the contents of classes in a profitable way, at the same time, which will also facilitate their daily chores at home, helping them to have more time to study for a good school performance. And so, we will reduce school dropouts and premature marriages.
This campaign will provide:
