You Zioklui (Daniel's donation)

You lives in Atiavi, where we held the workshop. He's a school boy and attends the local primary school. He's in class 5, so he's with children mostly younger than himself - he's catching up, after being employed on the family farm for so long. He lives at home with his parents and 3 siblings. He told me that he wont be lending them his bicycle  ;o)
 
He'll use the bicycle to reach school (on time!) and run errands to Abor - the local 
junction ton, further inland.

Victor Zowonu (Edward's donation)

Victor live in Apoueno, which is about 4km away from our workshop site. He's been a sugar cane farmer all his life. The harvest season runs from Jan-April, and so right now, he's praying for rain. Sugar cane is a cash crop, and so he wholesales a large amount to market. He usually hires a car (taxi) to transport the huge bundles, but he now plans to use his bicycle - which has a rack fitted.
 
He'll use the bicycle for his daly run to the farm, whereas previously, he would 
have walked.

Kojo is a local bicycle repairer, and has been helping us with our workshop. He is the apprentice' of 'Master John'. He has been learning bicycle mechanics for 3 yeas, and hopes to open his own workshop very soon. He works 6 days a week, and being the junior, he has to run errands to local markets to purchase parts and consumables.Believe it or not (i had to check), although working as a cycle mechanic, he didn't own his own bicycle until now.
 
He is married with children. 3 young girls aged 5, 7 and 9.
