To get to school in Central Zambia, 16-year-old Beene needed to walk five miles each way, a distance that caused her great pain in her legs and often prevented her from going to school. The gift of a bicycle has changed her life. Beene now attends school regularly. She also is able to contribute to her family's economic well-being by collecting water and tending their garden. When the bike is not at school with Beene, her family borrows her bicycle to carry produce to market and to transport family members to the local health clinic eight miles away. For Beene and her family, the World Bicycle Relief bicycle is more than transportation; it's A New Beginning.
