Pedals for Progress in Jamaica
- Hello everyone,
I have e-mailed many of you already about this project. I have
successfully formed a partnership between my agency here in Jamaica;
Ewarton Community Development Action Committee (ECODAC) with Pedals
for Progress. Pedals for Progress sends bicycles and parts to
partner agencies in developing countries to support sustainable
projects that will assist in community development, youth
development and provide low cost transportation for needy people.
ECODAC intends to use the Pedals for Progress program to be part of
the curriculum for a Life Skills Training Centre that is being
developed to assist young men who are in need of vocational and
technical training. The project will be sustainable and income
generating. The only issue is that money needs to be raised for the
initial shipment of a container of bicycles and parts. After the
initial shipment each shipment will pay for itself.
I am basically working on this fund raising without the benefit of a
budget or resources. I am paying for computer internet time out of
my own pocket from computer internet cafe in the market town nearby.
This is cutting into my Red Stripe budget! So, I am begging you to
consider helping a community in Jamaica by donating what you can to
Pedals for Progress by following the information below, or go to
P4p.org and click on the donation section of their site. Make sure
you tell Pedals for Progress that you want your donation to go to
the Jamaica shipment.
I wish I could offer you something like a free Jamaica t-shirt or
something for donating, but like I said before our agency has a very
small budget! If you come to Jamaica while I am still here I can
offer to be your tour guide and buy you a Red Stripe!
Please donate soon, we need to raise money for the shipment by the
end of the month.
Thank you for your consideration.
