I am working as a volunteer for TRE and I am the initiator of this crowdfunding campaign. For me the chance to support local people on the one hand and improve sustainable mobility on the other hand is unique. Therefor I want to create funding possibilities like this crowdfunding campaign to help the eMo Bodaboda making history! To introduce a new technology in a country like Tanzania means courage, energy and tenacity.

The story behind the establishment of eMo Bodaboda began since 5 years ago. Erick Mome has been investigating and discuss with many Bobaboda riders about the problem of the business and mobility in Tanzania. Most of the fuel Bodaboda riders are experiencing financial and running costs problems such as high fuel cost which changes every month, high maintenance/operational costs and environmental pollution due to noise and gas emission. Therefore, the eMo Bodaboda is the solution for all problems mentioned above.
