At the beginning of April, FABIO and EURIST were able to discuss all the essential work steps and responsibilities up to the roll-out of the first 100 e-bikes in a workshop lasting several days with 30 participants in Jinja. Due to supply bottlenecks caused by corona, this will not take place until the end of September/beginning of October. At the project presentation to the German Ambassador in Uganda, we were able to gain the support of the Embassy, which posted the project on social media. Ambassador Matthias Schuer intends to be present at the roll out in Jinja. In addition, the company Bodawerk (Kampala, is one of our new partners and will cooperate with us in battery recycling in the future. Finally, the two Weltwärts volunteers Anka and Lars have started their work in Jinja with great motivation and support both the preparations on site and the communication between FABIO and EURIST.
