Vodafone are once again making a World of Difference to jole rider.
Steve Atyeo has been successful in his application to be funded by Vodafone while he works for jole rider, following Tony Oliver who succeeded in 2011.
Working closely with Saidu Gbla, jole rider’s Education Director in The Gambia, Steve will not only help to improve the lives of young people in Africa but also help young people in the UK to understand how their own actions can have a positive impact on other people 1000's of miles away.
Steve will lead primary and secondary schools in The Gambia and the UK in jole rider’s curriculum-centred “Partner Projects” including Gardening, Renewable Energy, Sports, Fitness and Tourism. Pupils and students work together on these Projects, learning from one another’s approaches, exchanging written and digital work.
Steve will also lead school trips from the UK to The Gambia, and run Teacher Development Workshops for Gambian teachers at the Learning Development Centre.
