ADVENTURE WITH MICRO
HELPING CHARITIES THROUGH SCOOTER AID: HOMYDAZE ACADEMY
Beverley is one of the members of our customer service team. A walking font of all knowledge she knows everything there is to know about scooters and accessories.
Our Scooter Aid scheme helps charities and good causes by donating revamped old or unwanted scooters.
One recent beneficiary of the Scooter Aid scheme is Homydaze Academy, Nigeria.
A little bit about Homydaze Academy
HOMYDAZE Academy is a fully-fledged co-educational Nursery and Primary Junior School.
It is estimated that ten million (one third of the population) school aged children are not enrolled in school in Nigeria. Homydaze offers schooling and childcare provision for children aged from 3 months up to 8 years and this includes weekend coaching and exam preparation.
Here is their Scooter Aid story
Micro scooters donated to Homydaze Academy in 2017 to help support their outdoor leaning provision. In fact, the scooters were originally lost in transit as they were part of a larger barrel of donations that went onto a charter ship. Thankfully they turned up 6 months after.
“They are an enormous success with the children who line up to take it in turns on them. They cant believe they’ve got their own scooters.”
“I can’t tell you how grateful we are for your big-hearted gesture.
It was enormously kind and has bought great happiness to a group of children who appreciate them every time they play on them.
The Academy is doing very well and continues o grow taking in children from the local and village and giving them a valuable education.” P. Mckenzie on behalf of Homydaze Acedemy.
THE IDEA BEHIND THE SCOOTER AID SCHEME IS TO…
Provide practical aid to under-privileged children to aid their physical and mental development.
Give children back their childhood – some children have very little in the way of toys we want to give them something that is theirs and they can enjoy using every single day.
Recycle items that might otherwise end up in landfill.
