Hello there, wonderful supporters!

We hope that you are doing well! I am so pleased to write you today to let you know that we have received photographs from our project site in Okalongo, Namibia! Our BEC shipment (Bicycling Empowerment Center) provided a much needed expansion of the Tuyoleni Bicycle Project in Okalongo, Namibia, allowing extra workshop space and increased supplies of bikes and parts to the region.

Although Okalongo is in a very remote area, our partners on the ground in Namibia have worked diligently to get these photographs to us so that we can pass them along to you! Please enjoy, and know that you played a vital role in making this a reality! We cannot adequately express our gratitude, and look forward to our evaluation and support trip to Okalongo in May, where we will be able to provide more in depth updates and stories for you. Please always feel free to contact us if you have any questions or ideas, and thank you for your continued support of our efforts to transfer mobility and empowerment for our friends in Namibia!

Take care and all the best!

With thanks,
Mary Harwell
& the B4H GA family
