Salaam Foundation’s Azhar Vadi said, “By empowering and educating our children in their early and vulnerable years of life, we can together leave a lasting and sustainable contribution to the development of South Africa.”
Last year Vadi rode from Musina to Cape Town for the same cause. The inaugural #Riding4SAeducation campaign resulted in approximately 1000 pairs of school shoes, 2500 stationery packs, school uniforms, hundreds of reusable sanitary pads, school kitchen appliances and even a computer lab reaching the most deserving learners across South Africa.
