VBP receives first shipment of 2010
Re~Cycle's first shipment for the new year has been successfully unloaded at the Village Bicycle Project in Accra, Ghana. More than 360 bicycles were loaded into Re~Cycle's final container of 2009, just two weeks before Christmas - which also included many spare parts, tools and accessories.
The shipment will be split between veteran recipient VBP and Re~Cycle's newest partner in Ghana - the Ezetela Bicycle Workshop, who will take a small number of bicycles and spares to kick-start their workshop before their own shipment arrives in February 2010.
The Village Bicycle Project will begin its outreach work for the new year by visiting a string of villages across the Western Region, where it will work with Peace Corp field staff to bring bicycles and maintenance classess to rural settlements.
