HELPING OTHERS WORLDWIDE IS OUR THING

May 17, 2014 - We collected 39 bikes and 4 sewing machines.  These bikes will be shipped by Pedals for Progress to Rivas, Nicaragua to be used as basic family transportation instead of automobiles. They will enable parents to find work up to 10 miles from their home and children's bikes mean that they will be able to get to and from school rather than try to learn from home. The sewing machines will enable seamstresses and tailors workers to earn a living.
