My story

[p]Hi, I am cycling from Lusaka to Livingstone, a distance of over 300 miles, in September to support the great work done in Zambia by the charity Build It International. Build It trains builders and gives those builders experience building the schools that it also funds. Zambia ranks 156th (out of 181) in the world on per capita GDP so this help makes a real difference to people's lives in Zambia.[/p][p]On day 4 we arrive in Monze, in southern Zambia which just happens to be my place of birth. The black and white photo below is from Easter 1969 and was taken in Chikuni mission in Zambia when my father was teaching maths at Canisius College. [/p][p]As regards the cycling, 30 degree temperatures and dirt roads really do mean this is more for a good cause than for fun but to emphasise the point I commit to match any donation you make £ for £. Twalumba (thank you in Chitonga). Neil[/p]
