Their main activity takes place in Palmarin (Senegal) where, the maintenance of bicycles also generates employment among the population of the region. .

In line of their strong commitment to the use of bicycles as a social and work integration, Santa Fixie Group customers will raise funds so that the NGO can continue their task in Palmarin.

In particular, through their help, 25 children will be able to go to school and, as a result, improve their academic results.

Santa Fixie and employment creation in Nairobi

At the end of last year, Santa Fixie Group users raised the amount needed in order that the NGO Bikes not Bombs could distribute bicycles and create jobs for young people from poor neighborhoods in Nairobi. You can remember the project HERE.

Today, months later, we have good news! 2,214 bicycles have been donated and hundreds of parts of them have been distributed so that the old ones can be repaired. In addition, 4 young people have received training to work in the network of Cycloville stores.

Thank you to all customers from Santa Fixie for collaborating!

Here the final report,

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.
