KLM Making a Difference in Kenya

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 5 May 2009

On 7 October, 2009, it will be exactly 90 years since KLM Royal Dutch Airlines was founded, and to celebrate the airline is organising a range of activities to mark the anniversary.

On the programme for May is the charitable project Cycling Blue for Kenya.

Cycling Blue is a two-part project that revolves around bicycles. The first part trains people to become cycle repairers and sets up a cycle workshop in Kenya. The other part finances bicycles for Kenyan children who live more than 10kms from school. KLM is working on the project with the charity Cycling Out of Poverty.

KLM is organising three events to raise money for Cycling Blue. The first is a Spinning Marathon on Sunday, 10 May at the Amstel Park/Achmea Health Center in Amsterdamse Bos, Amsterdam. This will comprise six one-hour blocks.

On Sunday, 24 May, there is a charity party Out for Africa at Club Panama in Amsterdam with DJ Roog and more.

Finally, a lecture by global cyclist Frank van Rijn will be held on Wednesday, 27 May, at STRANDZUID, Amsterdam.
