Did you know that bicycles are the most conveyance used and sold in the world? It is estimated that there are more than 1.000.000.000 bicycles around the world today.

In countries like Spain, the country where the use of bicycles has increased the most during the last years, every time there are more people who decide to use this transport as an alternative to the car or moto, which are more expensive and less sustainable and ecologic.

However, there are less developed countries, such as Uganda, Kenia or India, where the bicycles has developed another use, and has become a good tool for social and professional inclusion.

fvf1-666Santa Fixie Group, one of our e-commerce companies which we collaborate with, has launched so many social campaigns in order to potential this new use of the bicycle. Their new challenge, which starts today, is to raise funds in order that Vicente Ferrer Foundation can distribute bicycles to kids and teenagers in Kothacheruvu, a very little rural area in Andra Pradesh (India), which it is located very far away from the mail school centers of the region. The lack of adequate means of transportation often leads families to decide that their children, and especially their daughters, stay at home for fear of something happening on the way to school.

The distribution of bicycles will ensure secondary education for Young people in Kothacheruvu and to Foster equal opportunities for boys and girls, in order to promote their integral development and empowerment.
