Happy International Womens Day, from Evelyn and Asamoah in Ghana, who’ve just got bikes and had training to look after them, so they last a long time. 8th March, 2014
One of Re~Cycle’s key beneficiaries are women, as we recognise that supporting them will help their families and communities. And that they currently do most of the work, fetch most of the water, earn less of the money and own least of the property…
Both women attended one of the Village Bike Project’s One-Day workshops - bikes from the same shipment as Opoku the cashew farmer.
Another example is our partner BEN Namibia, whose head mechanic trainer is a women, as are over half the staff running their 31 workshops.
