He would place one foot on the pedal in an upward position and used the other foot to push himself off the ground. Gradually he was able to lift his second foot onto the pedal and started moving in a controlled manner, with Gemma holding on to the bike as support.
Reducing this support overtime Gemma eventually let go, and off he flew.  This young man was overwhelmed with happiness, joy and excitement that not only did he learn how to ride his bike on his own, but he was able to participate in the school
camp just like his friends! Update – He is now a confident rider and learning road safety.

What is Peer Mentoring?

A peer mentor is someone who provides guidance, support, and advice to their peers based on their own experiences and knowledge.


Peer mentors are typically individuals who have undergone similar experiences or challenges as those they are mentoring, allowing them to offer valuable insights, encouragement, and practical assistance. 


Peer mentoring relationships are often characterised by mutual respect, empathy, and understanding, as peers work together to achieve personal and professional growth.


 Peer mentors play a crucial role in fostering a supportive and inclusive environment, helping their peers navigate challenges, develop skills, and reach their goals.
