Lets start the cycle!

Well, after a slow start let’s get the cycle going!

Much has been written about breaking the cycle of poverty, well here’s a simple way to use  a cycle to break the cycle!

We would reach out to clubs or groups families, or maybe classes in schools to raise funds to buy one cycle rickshaw to help a family below the poverty line raise funds for themselves and improve their lives.

We would be happy to paint it in your schools or organisations colours and paint a donated by message.

The cost of vegetables have risen to levels unaffordable by the poor, 48 million people that’s 48% of the entire population of Bihar live in poverty. That’s less than 2 dollars a day.

The picture shows a poor family first in line for their rickshaw, as the mother of the family says. “We have two older brothers who could get money from our rickshaw which would make all the difference to us. We could never afford one and we cannot get loans”

Please help them.
