Bike For Others 2018


This year, the annual event Bike For Others was organized: cycling 160 km to collect sponsor money for the coming trips to South Africa. In addition to collecting money, the Bike For Others is a big happening. Decorated with African music, good food and drinks and a cozy atmosphere, not only the participants, but also family, friends and acquaintances cycled along with us. We weather was fine, it was a nice day! At the end there’s was a barbecue. Students who had just returned from their internship in South Africa meet the people who leave from the summer. This yielded fruitful conversations. An additional surprise was that two Africans had flown from Africa to join this event. 6 to 8 weeks together in Africa and now meet at the Bike For Others in the Netherlands. What a special day !

Students shape a meaningful project ...

After two years of working and exploring together we finally have closure. We (Eye for Others) and Saxion Colleges in Enschede, Deventer and Apeldoorn entered into a formal cooperation. For at least six years students of all twenty Saxion academies can complete their internships, minors and graduation assignments taking part in our Ritchie project. The entire project will be governed by two guiding principles, the lectureship of Saxions Pride and Eye for Others’ Circular Development Reinforcement. Below, an email is displayed where Jeroen and Marloes, coordinators employed at Saxion, share their sentiments with us after their first-hand experiences with our project and the students currently operating there.

Future plans Eye For Others

Opposed to the rainbow project across the road, the organization has a land of about 10 hectares. This land has unlimited possibilities because we have water rights. This means: we can use water from the river to spray the land. There is a water pump on the land. It takes little effort to restore this pump for the water supply. Thanks to sponsors, the ground is now being made weed-free. This is a hell of a job because it is necessary to eradicate the weed completely because otherwise it will  come back. In this video, project leader Ton van der Smit explains what the future plans for this piece of land are. Enough plans, enough work, but above all ! enough enthusiasm and motivation for the future of the project …
