- Friends and Partners of P4P
|Our mission is to support nonprofits — grassroots organizations in particular — working to promote environmental restoration and conservation, sustainable food and agriculture, people’s health, and a wide range of social concerns.
Pedals for Progress is pleased to announce the initiation of a new sewing-machine project in West Africa. Rural Development through Action (RUDA), located in Limbe, Cameroon, plans to create skills-training programs for orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and women in need of economic opportunities. P4P is proud to be aligned with yet another nonprofit, non-governmental organization that supports community development and shares practical ways in which people can address both environmental and human-rights issues. Made possible by a grant from the Clif Bar Family Foundation, the first shipment left on April 9th and contains 15 sewing machines earmarked for RUDA’s workshops where these students will endeavor to become self-employed dressmakers and tailors.

|The idea of Chilanthropy came to me about a year ago. My friends were expecting a baby girl…Lilly. I co-hosted their baby shower, and decided to hand make candles scented with Lily of the Valley as parting gifts for 60+ guests.The candles were a hit! With experience in modern design and home crafting, I decided to go into a business that seemed saturated but missing personal touch, good quality and style. Inspired by travel and world culture, each of Chilanthropy’s candles are named after places I have been. The scent is then built around the theme of the candle – recreating my journey for you to enjoy.|
