Isithumba Project

A day at Isithumba!

I had the opportunity to be part of an awesome project happening just around the corner from the HQ.

This was a combined effort between various local and German factions to get kids from the nearby Isithumba village on bikes. This took place ‘Isithumba Compound’ on the banks of the river near the village situated down in the Valley of a Thousand Hills area.

A project managed by Makl, a German national, and BMX rider(a good one at that). Makl oversees a Community Project that gets Villagers to be involved with the local industry and business initiatives. Part of their goal this year was to get BMX bikes for the local kids. Needless to say these kids from the local school were well stoked with the van full of United and Fit BMX bikes that turned up one sunny morning. With special permission a handful of youngsters got the morning off school to officially receive the bikes. A ‘test’ ride ensued and much fun after that.
