Consult-Nord- Pelinia, Moldova

955 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. Read more about Consult- Nord and Moldova in the Fall 2009 InGear.
