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.

On the last Wednesday of 2011 we will have our End Of Year Celebration.
We will be loading our 6th container of the year with bikes, books and education resources for African schools.

And the highlights of 2011 which we will be celebrating include...

  1.   Launching Badge-A-Bike : our Virtual Gift to support bikes4Africa
      Connecting our Learning Development Centre in The Gambia to the World Wide Web
      Running our first Teacher Development Workshops for Gambian teachers
      Holding our first My Bike Jumble : these will now be held every month
      Gaining the support of journalist and broadcaster Jon Snow
      A visit from Jim Moulson, President, Rotary International Britain and Ireland [RIBI]
      Loading our Silver Jubilee Container in July [that was our first 25 containers away!]

So, if you’d like to take a well-earned break from the effort of eating mince pies and watching TV, why not come and join us at the Container Loading? [Between eating more mince pies, and raising a glass or two, we might have you loading a few bikes too.]
