Pump for Peace completes first pump track in Uganda

The warm and vibrant community of Zziba is home to Kasanje Cycling, a project run by Sam Mutton and Rafael Otim as part of their work with the Musizi Joy Foundation, an NGO working in Kampala, Uganda with a focus on community development projects that empower and provide for women, children and young people in struggling communities. Kasanje Bike Park is the first of its kind in Uganda and provides a safe space for people in the community. In February 2023, Pump for Peace completed construction of the first asphalt pump track in the country in collaboration with Rotwild Bikes.
