Keirin Culture will be hosting a bicycle themed art show on Saturday March 27th in Roanoke, VA. The show will feature work from artists across the globe, including skateboard legend Natas Kaupas and London’s Death Spray Custom alongside myriad other artists. The show will start at 6 p.m. on Saturday followed by a silent auction and party to raise money for the Nianjema Secondary School in Bagamoyo, Tanzania. A percentage of food and drink sales at Blue 5 next door will go to the charity as well. Friday night come to the Alley Cat race and win prizes from great sponsors like Outlier, Yanco Pads, Fabric Horse and more! Be sure to check out our facebook page!

Goals of the Tanzania Education Fund:
1.Provide a quality education for the young people of Bagamoyo, Tanzania,
who would not otherwise have an opportunity. Only 20% of the children of
Tanzania attend secondary school, mainly because this poor country cannot
afford to build the schools.
2. Ensure continuing education opportunities by establishing a two-year
high school.
3. Provide equal educational opportunities for girls and boys.
4. Encourage girls to compete in math and the sciences.
5. Fulfill a great gap in education in Bagamoyo by providing a local day school.
6. Strive for self-supporting school once all the buildings, teacher housing and laboratory equipment are completed.
7. Maximum number of students per class to be 30.
8. Provide two healthy meals for all students and teachers.
9. No corporal punishment (which is common in East Africa).
10. Make available two tuition scholarships per class for orphan children.
