RMB supports early rider development
RMB Namibia, through the FNB Foundation, sponsored N$104,000 towards the Early-Rider Development BMX programme for the Namibian Cycling Federation (NCF) and part of the proceeds were used to host an event in Omuthiya over last weekend.
Altogether 48 children signed up for participation and of these only four were able to actually ride a bicycle confidently.
Ray Auala, Chairman RMB CSI’: “At RMB we believe that good business creates a better world. While business is a fundamental part of society, it also has the responsibility to have an interest in the success of society.”
He added that society could only prosper as a whole if all aspects were in harmony. This included money matters, health, wealth and a general feeling of well-being. “What a fantastic way to enjoy the day, especially as a youngster by mastering a fairly easy skill such as riding a bicycle. We feel that this should not be something that only a privileged few can do but all Namibians.”
Auala expressed his joy with the success of the weekend and the fun had by all. “The bicycles were handed over to the school (Epundi Combined School) where they will continue to train and build on the foundations laid during this eventful weekend. Follow-ups on the programme will be done by the NCF and RMB Namibia CSI Committee in order to ensure that the programme continues. We look forward to many more fun days and children who can ride a bicycle,” Aula added.
