Sustainable West Seattle is throwing a Pedals for People Party to accept donations of used bikes and repairing them at the West Seattle Tool Library on Sunday July 21st at noon. Bikes are donated for kids to ride to school in the West African country of Togo.
Join SWS to recycle and repair the bikes, which will be shipped to Togo through Alafia.com. Bikes for these children are crucial for them to get to school. Many children in rural areas walk 5-15 miles to school, making it impossible for them to have time to study. This is especially true for girls, who traditionally have more household chores than boys.
Meet at the West Seattle Tool Library at 12 noon on Sunday July 21st. Tools, work stations and expertise will be available. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us and learn bicycle repair skills as we repair dozens of bikes for donation to rural Africa. Bring a bike for repair or donation or just come to help fix bikes or to learn how to fix bikes. Bikes will go through alaffia.com to rural Togo.
Donated bicycles can also be brought to Alki Bike and Board in the Admiral District on California Avenue, two doors south of the Admiral intersection on the east side.
The West Seattle Tool Library is a project of Sustainable West Seattle and is located in the rear of the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center on Delridge Way across from Delridge Park. The Tool Library is accessible via the 125 and 120 and 50 King County Metro buses.
