Third container of 2016 unloaded in Ghana!
Our third container of 2016 has safely arrived and unloaded in Accra, Ghana with Village Bicycle Project. The 482 bicycles inside will now be sorted, and those suitable for their workshops will be prepped before heading out to programmes in the northern regions later this month.
This container was especially important to us, as it was the first ever consigned by Prosper Dzandu, who we’ve been working closely with since way back in 2010! Prosper (pictured here doused in talcum powder) originally came to us via another workshop we installed on the outskirts of the Greater Accra Region. Formally a skilled kente clothe weaver, he retrained as a bicycle repairer before joining the VBP team as a trainer in 2013. He’s now progressed to being a consignee after more than 2 years of service distributing bicycles and repair training via Village Bicycle Project’s fantastic One Day Workshop Programme.
It’s been a long journey for Prosper, who aptly named his own bicycle repair business in his home town ‘No Rush in Life Bicycle Workshop’, and we’re so proud to see him succeed. Congratulations Prosper! Ayekooooo!!
