Prescott, Arizona – The village classroom in Buhoma, Uganda overflowed with vibrant fabric colors as latecomers peered through the windows. Organizers of the women’s bicycle workshop were stunned as registration topped 200. The workshop was part of three weeks of activities planned around a visit by One Street’s executive director, Sue Knaup, in January.

Over the next week, these eager women returned to practice their new skills in bicycle riding and repair.
