This project has finished.
Hello! My name is Danish Khan and I'm from Kohat, Pakistan!
I would like to raise funds to buy a bike so I can be able to go to University by myself.
The house where I live with my family is in the countryside.
There are no bus stop. The nearest road is at 2km from home. I need to walk that distance and after that wait for someone who drive me to college.
The road back from college is exactly the same. When I hitchhike I also need to give the driver some money.
Bad weather days are especially awful. During summer temperatures can reach 45 degrees and it is easy to have a heatstroke.
I don't know when I could be able to get to the university and I'm late many times.
This affects my grades, as sometimes i even can't attend the lesson, which is really bad for my future.
This is also not good for my health. Solution is simple but difficult: To buy a bike. But my dad's pension is not enough for me, my mum and my 5 brothers.
I wish I could have a part-time job, but how could I get to work without a transportation anyway?
I would like to buy a reliable bike, so I need $930 plus my own savings.
If I get enough funds I would like to buy a new bike, as I need to ride it a lot everyday.
With a bike I will have more time to study and to even find a part-time job to help my family.
I would really appreciate your collaboration!
