One of Cycling out of Poverty’s longest relationship is with our partner organisation AVO in Burkina Faso. On international women’s day 8th of March 2010, Esther Yameogo of AVO received a medal from the president of Burkina Faso for the achievements of AVO in giving women a chance to cycle out of poverty. The president is impressed about the bicycle projects of AVO. Please have a look at the video on the right, to see a short story about AVO’s bicycle projects, which was featured on Burkina Faso’s national news broadcasting in October 2009 (a few days after 100 bicycles-on-credit were handed over to women in the village of Nariou).
