Abel Ayivon, Lomé, Togo Histoire de vélo

Abel is an IT manger and a volunteer at the ONG Echo de la Jeunesse since 2013.  Getting involved makes him feel useful and help youths. He coordinates the bike mecanic training, giving an opportunity to youths living 15 km away from school, to own a bike and learn how to fix it. “In the first class, we had a kid who had to walk 20 km to go to school and back. He was always trying to get our attention during the training. Since he recieved his bike, he’s always the first of his class!”
