Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has donated funds to buy bicycles for school children in Namibia, according to a report in Contactmusic, via Indian Express.

Jolie’s donation, reportedly around the $10,000 mark, went to Okanimekwa School and was partially spent on 75 bicycles.

The bicycles have already made a significant difference to many of the school children, including 17-year old Andreas Kristofelius.

Kristofelius’ journey to school is now 90 minutes shorter: “I used to stay late at school, then walk home to collect firewood to make light so I could finish my homework (because) there is no electricity.

“Now, with the bicycle, I get to school early, and I’m already working when my teacher arrives. And I can stay later and finish all my homework because it doesn’t take me long to ride home."
