The High Commission of India in Namibia marked UN World Bicycle Day and the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth earlier this week, by handing over bicycles to 15 deserving learners of the Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School in the capital.

Speaking at the occasion, High Commissioner Prashant Agrawal shared Mahatma Gandhi’s life story and some inspiring incidents from his life to the large number of learners present. He also encouraged the children to follow Mahatma Gandhi’s message of “being the change that one wishes to see in the world”.

Principal Katjiuongua emphasized the values of integrity and self-respect to the learners.

The 15 bicycles were provided courtesy of the M/s. Rani Group.

At the same occasion, a number of books on various subjects were also gifted by the High Commission for the school’s library.
