For the Children

It started with a bike breakdown on a cycle tour through Namibia, Africa, in 2014. Was her tour over? What happened next would forever change Ursula’s life and the lives of countless children.


It started with a bike breakdown on a cycle tour through Namibia, Africa, in 2014. No problem for a seasoned cyclist like Ursula, but she was in a remote area with no access to bike shops or spare parts. Was her tour over? What happened next would forever change Ursula’s life and the lives of countless children.

Today we welcome Ursula Koll, who has had many incredible experiences solo cycling through an amazing twelve countries; the USA, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Spain, Siberia, Mongolia, China, Africa, Chile, and Norway!

For the Children recounts Ursula’s chance meeting with Salome, who runs an African orphanage, and how she has made it her mission to improve the lives of over 120 children in the bush. Learn more about her work to help children on her website Radreisen für Aidswaisen.
