Kees Joosse was director of the KNHM for 9 years. On 1st of April 2010 he took formal leave of his job with a parting drink. Because he was well disposed towards Africa, he asked his guests to make a donation to Cycling out of Poverty as his parting gift. This resulted in a donation of well over 2,000 euros which will be doubled by NCDO. Cycling out of Poverty would like to thank everyone who made a donation. The donation will be used to offer small entrepreneurs in Uganda the opportunity to aqcuire a bicycle on credit. This way they are able to use a bicycle to generate more income and climb out of poverty.
