Desmond Amesimeke – Technical training center student, one-day workshop participant
“Normally I would’ve walked from here to town which would take about 30 minutes, but now that I’ve been given a bike, now it will take about 10 minutes which will limit the time factor.”
Desmond is an electrical engineering student at Accra Technical Training Center. He first learned to ride a bike from a cousin when he was young, but he’s never had his own. He enjoyed VBP’s One Day Workshop, learning how to adjust bikes and repair flat tires, but he’s most excited that he was able to afford his own bicycle, which will cut down on his travel time to and from school.
