P4P and Rotary in Senegal!

Summer/Fall 1999 InGear

1999summerFallSenegalIn early 1999, P4P made its first shipment—440 bikes—to the West African coastal nation of Senegal. The recipient—the Association des Bacheliers pour L’Emploi et le Developpement (ABACED)—is a non-profit agency, established in 1985 by 20 young Senegalese professionals, which manages programs in savings mobilization and credit, environmental protection, and education, particularly with disadvantaged women and youth. ABACED’s new project reconditions P4P-donated bicycles, generating local employment, and provides them at low cost to urban street vendors, rural farmers producing vegetables for urban markets, and other disadvantaged microentrepreneurs.
