Why are you raising money for India, Pakistan and China?

Because in these three countries alone, there are 620 million people who cannot read or write. That means 620 million people who I can try to help now. That is a mission in itself.

India, Pakistan and China also represent the most feasible route to travel from South to North Asia along the Silkroad.

Are you raising £100,000 for each country or for all three?

All money raised will be split equally between India, Pakistan and China. In these three countries alone there are 620 million people who cannot think for themselves.

How is my donation used to benefit education?

Once ActionAid has received your donation, it is placed in a general account until the ride has finished. The total is then split three ways and is sent to ActionAid's programs in India, Pakistan and China. ActionAid directly operates schools and partners with hundreds of like-minded partner organisations in India Pakistan and China that work with the most needing communities.

This might be for gypsy tribes or girl children, child labourers or remote villages. In countries like Pakistan this is extremely common. Your donation will be used by ActionAid to fund projects across each country and crucially to change lives forever. Riding for Education has already visited many projects supported by ActionAid or ActionAid's partners. Read more here. I have seen the results. As much as it's important to build new schools, it's important to keep existing ones running.
