The Bikes4Masai Project was created by people who loved cycling, including Carlos Verona, pro cyclist and his wife. The aim for the project is to donate more than 100 buffalo bikes to the Embiti School in the village of Ololaimutiek in Southern Kenya.

The project helps to solve one of the main issues in Kenya which is access to schooling. The children in Ololaimutiek benefit from the addition of the Buffalo bikes so they can access the schools that are far away from them. 

Buffalo bikes have been used as they are simple and sturdy bikes and are built for distance and durability. Which is exactly what is needed in Kenya for children to travel kilometres to get to school.

Espargaro has been a keen cyclist throughout his MotoGP career and has entered cycling events but uses it mainly as his training method. Espargaro took his wife and two kids to Kenya to help the charity out in their aims and ambitions with their project. 

Unlike many other MotoGP riders who would spend their winter breaks relaxing in the Maldives or such. Espargaro has used his time to improve a society that has less than he has. The factory Aprilia rider, who is a MotoGP race winner, has given him and his families time up to aid others in a thoughtful way.

As well as Espargaro the cycling company La Passione has also been supporting the Bikes4Masai Project. Back in March La Passione aided the Bikes4Masai Project by donating 2% of their March sales to support the charity. La Passione involved themselves in the project to help the sustainability of the Bikes4Masai Project for the long term. They also plan on sending a trained mechanic and spare parts to help with the Buffalo bikes.
