Even in a refugee camp, this man is working to build a better life. Safwan Harb fled Syria with two family members, and they settled in Zaatari, a refugee camp monitored by the United Nations and government of Jordan. Yet Harb and his family are all disabled, and it was difficult for them to get around on Zaatari’s uneven dirt streets. So Harb designed a creative electric bicycle.
He started with a regular bike, and then used spare parts to totally convert it into an accessible vehicle that gives freedom of movement to disabled people. The bicycle is guided through the handlebars, which are equipped with brakes. Five 12 volt batteries power the bike.
Harb left Syria three years ago and came to Zaatari. He dreams of one day studying technology in the classroom. “If possible I would like to study technology because I have many ideas but not the academic learning,” he said.
