Children pedal to punctuality in South Africa

Donated bicycles can turn a two-hour walk to school into a 30 minute one, allowing children to focus on their studies.

    Many children in South Africa walk long distances to school. Some arrive late or even drop out because it takes too long to walk.

    Now, there's a plan to improve attendance and punctuality.
