'Drop the gun and ride a bike'- Bicycles for youth in Afghanistan
Drop and Ride was founded in late 2016 by youth from Kabul, Afghanistan. Since then, the project has used sports training in tandem with educational opportunities to address important issues: The desire for peace, equality, democracy and better education. Up to 100 young people, many of them girls, now take part in the program every month. This is an important and unique offering for a crisis-ridden city like Kabul.
Why sports and education?
Sport is more than just exercise: It connects people, regardless of social background, gender or religion. In addition, sport empowers children and young people and teaches values such as tolerance, fairness and self-confidence. Everyone has a right to education. Free access to education is a cornerstone of a functioning society and the key to many challenges of our time. It is precisely the combination of education and sport that brings children and young people from different backgrounds together and thus enables an exchange. This creates new social and professional perspectives for the children and young people involved.
Abasha e.V. supports sports and educational initiatives in difficult environments in building stable project structures. For example, they have been working closely with Drop and Ride since the beginning of 2019 by providing financial and organizational support to the initiative.
Support these SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
