Looking for a few good volunteers

SDC11190 You know of Pedals for Progress as we have had great success during the last 24 years recycling used American bicycles from the greater New York City Philadelphia area. In fact we have collected and shipped 145,000 bikes to developing world nations to spur economic growth. What you might not know is we have a sideline which we hope will become almost as important. We have shipped over 3100 sewing machines! Click here to read more

Our Approach

Every year, affluent Americans buy 18 million new bicycles and discard millions of old ones, abandoning many more unused in basements, sheds, and garages. Most of these end up in our already overburdened landfills. Meanwhile, poor people overseas need cheap, non-polluting transportation to get to jobs, markets, customers, and schools. Pedals for Progress has received, processed and donated over 142,00 biycles and 2,800 Sewing Machines.
used sewing machines and $10.8 million in new spare parts to partner charities in 38 developing world countries. Pedals for Progress isn't just donating used bicycles: It's also helping developing world economies by promoting self-sustaining bicycle repair businesses.
