    Story

    From June 14th to June 15th, 2019 Tessy de Nassau will be participating in Vätternrundan, the largest recreational bicycle ride in the world. Starting and finishing in Motala, Sweden, the course runs 300 kilometres around Lake Vättern. By sponsoring Tessy’s bicycle ride, you will help Professors Without Borders (PROWIBO) improve access to higher education around the world.

    PROWIBO develops customized short-term summer schools for institutions that invite them to their campus. PROWIBO supports and uses the summer school model because it has been a proven success among the elite and it is their mission to make it available to all university students. With the help of their donors and supporters, PROWIBO has hosted summer schools in Sierra Leone, India, Uganda, and Thailand.

    We would love for more students to access this programme and hope you can send more lecturers next year” – Sipim, lecturer at Srinakharinwirot University in Bangkok Thailand

    Your donations cover the travel and accommodation costs of PROWIBO’s volunteer professors and help PROWIBO design and distribute custom-made textbooks and writing material to students. Get involved and help Tessy and PROWIBO educate, inspire, and empower young people through education!
