Alexander and his bike

Do you remember Alexander? The warm-hearted man with the big smile who many of you supported to buy a bike last year? Well, he is still going strong and is one of the key people in Empowered Voices. He is extremely loyal to the group and helps out in any way he can. Every time a meeting is schedules he bikes around to the five villages to tell people about the time and place for the meeting. Since power is so unreliable and a lot of people can't afford to buy air time for their cell phone, it would be impossible to reach people unless Alexander biked around to spread information. Go Alexander! :)

Check out some photos of our communication-handyman below. Even giving it a go at the computer! (NB: The last photo does not show Alexander's new bike - that's Sylvia's old bike. Photos of new bike will come later!)
