On the 25th October 2020 – Saray Khumalo, the first black African woman to conquer Mt. Everest – together with cyclists, partners and supporters set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the most money raised during an eight-hour stationary cycling fundraiser. Collectively we raised more than R 704 000 for literacy.
“Collectively we cycled 5 040 km in 8 hours to help change the education narrative and give our youth an opportunity to be the best they can be. 8 hours is minuscule compared to the future that this will offer the kids. “ Saray Khumalo
The funds will be used to set up an iSchoolAfrica digital library in a rural or township school in each of South Africa’s nine provinces.
Each library will consist of a mobile iPad lab supported by curriculum-based apps, award-winning numeracy and literacy software, access to a full library, teacher training modules, dedicated programme facilitators, and mentors.
Help us to continue to equip our youth with the tools to succeed.
