It’s done! The 500th woman sits on the saddle!
Hoda, 28 years old, from Egypt, made a very quick start on her first training session in 2018 and she was hardly willing to stop riding her bike, despite the onset of dusk. Very proud and happy, she finally brought the bike back to the shelter. What a start!
We have experienced this great mixture of joy, pride, courage and self-confidence 500 times – with all the women who have learned to cycle with us. An amazing number! An entire school building could fill our graduates!
We are currently collecting funds for our first workshop in Brandenburg, aimed at those women who have no opportunity to come to our sessions in Berlin. The organization of the workshop, the arrangement of the transport and finding volunteers on site require an extra effort from all of us. Every euro helps!
