Bikes and 15 Sewing Machines Shipped
A local Moldovan NGO established to promote local economic development
in Pelinia, saw the potential results that Pedals for Progress’s
bicycles and sewing machines could provide and requested to become a partner.
Consult-Nord started selling bicycles this winter after receiving a shipment
in late December of last year. The good quality,affordable bicycles are
now available at a shop set up by Consult-Nord, offer numerous opportunities
to villagers that otherwise would be inaccessible to them. The photographs
below are from the sewing workshop at Consult-Nord from the first shipment.
