We are proud to introduce the SWEETbike which is a division that deals with assembling and delivering quality bicycles to schools.
The programme aims to enhance matriculate results, the attendance performance of the students while their health is also improved. Furthermore the programme helps to develop and train upcoming entrepreneurs in building bicycle maintenance centers in their villages.
