Last Seen Off the Coast of Spain...

Sending our shipment off with fanfare...

What, do you ask, was last seen off the coast of Spain? Our second shipment of recycled bicycles heading for Walvis Bay, Namibia, that is!! Thanks to YOU, we will be impacting commuities in Namibia by transferring transportation for development projects and personal empowerment. Woo hoo! You are such a rock star.

We had so much fun packing and shipping the container for our second shipment of bikes, tools and spare parts. If you weren't able to be a part of our load day, we'd love to share the joy through a few photos on our Facebook page.
We are so excited to share developments with you as the weeks progress and as we plan for our support and evaluation trip in the months to come. Although we are coming to a close with this project page, do not fret, you can still keep up with all of the latest and greatest news, and continue to give towards bicycle empowerment, by connecting with us through our updated Project Page: Bicycling Empowerment Center - Namibia.
THANK YOU again for being our greatest champions and supporters. From our hearts to yours, we are abundantly grateful for your generosity and willingness to impact the lives of others!
With warmth,
Davis & Mary Harwell
& the B4H family
