Training of women as bicycle technicians


Santafixie-GroupWe have spoken many times of Santa Fixie Group’s continued commitment to the use of bicycles as a tool for social and labor inclusion. Through their latest funded project, they have managed to get 25 children and young people from Palmarín (Senegal) to go to school thanks to the delivery of multiple bicycles (you can remember the project HERE).

Now, through Maya Pedal, they present us with a new concept of bicycles: bicimachines, an ecological alternative that proposes to replace motors that consume electricity or petroleum derivatives.

mp_logoMaya Pedal is an organization that works to improve the conditions of Guatemalan families, while at the same time contributing in each of their actions to the environment. The entity is a pioneer in the creation of bi-machines, which are driven with the force of pedals, through human propulsion.

They are machines that use the power of pedaling to drive “appliances”, such as blenders, washing machines, water pumps… No need for electricity. So they are a good tool to support the family economy.


In addition, since they are built by hand in the Maya Pedal workshop, they are also a very good opportunity to access the labor market. This is the goal of this campaign: to raise the amount needed to train adolescents who have left school so that they can work as bicycle and bicycle mechanic techniques.

All the euros collected by Santa Fixie will enable the entity to train 30 teenagers between 14 and 19 in San Andrés Itzapa (Guatemala) as bicycle and bicycle repair techniques, which will allow them to enter the labor market.

Help homeless dogs not go hungry


cap_eng_mascoterosToday we want to share with you the history of Bombón, a young dog that appeared at the beginning of last November in one of the refuges of the Jadoul Foundation  in a state of clear neglect.

A friend of the Foundation saw her and brought her directly to one of the centers of the  Jadoul Foundation in Cheste (Valencia).

“When Bombón arrived at the centre, the scenario was terrible” – Maria tells us, responsible of fundraising in Jadoul Foundation.  “We took her to the vet and they did several tests. She had a leishmania that had manifested cutaneous and due to the neglect and non-treatment of the disease, had affected the dog very aggressively. They prescribed special food, in addition to their medications, and special bathrooms to recover the skin and hair.

He allowed himself to do everything, and only had to endure the stinging when you healed her and stabbed you with a look of thanks when you finished. It broke our hearts. But as always, these furry ones we love so much do not give up, and she struggled and improved to become the preciousness that is now“, he adds.

Now, Bombón is a very nice dog, supper affectionate and, in the refuge of the Foundation she lives with many other dogs that, like her, look for a home.

After collecting the necessary funds so that 100 companuin animals of homeless people can have veterinary assistance, now the customers of Mascoteros will collaborate with Jadoul Foundation to help the 170 animals that, like Bombón, the Foundation host in order to ensure veterinary assistance and basic care.

Thanks to the amount that Mascoteros collect, Bombón and 170 more dogs will have food insured for a month and a half.
