Pedals for Progress (p4p)

Pedals for Progress (p4p) has devoted their efforts to the collection of more than 140,000 recycled bicycles and over 2,800 sewing machines in the United States for shipment to developing world countries to foster economic growth. Pedals for Progress has changed the lives of people in countries such as Fiji, Albania, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Uganda, Moldova, Yemen, and Guatemala, where transportation and opportunities for work are scarce for those in cities far away from their nation’s capital. Groups can volunteer to become tinkerers who will help clean and refurbish sewing machines as they are received.
