David Kinjah

DHL

The DHL development team has been developing over a number of years and has now become a fully supporting scheme that is focused on combining excellence in school with the discipline of training for cycling.

The kids supported by DHL come from very underprivileged backgrounds and schooling is always a challenge. DHL help to support the children while at school and their success as cyclists is directly linked to their academic achievements.

As the kids develop through school with the fantastic support of DHL, they are able to understand the true benefits of a healthy body and mind. The ultimate aim for kids is to do well enough at school to later join DHL as trainee employees. Through their successes on the bike and their profiles in surrounding villages, the kids inspire others to stay in school and keep working rather than follow the traditional path of dropping out.
