Funded Flexibility through bicycles, voluntary service in Malawi

Volunteer service at Africycle in Zomba in the south of Malawi

O. Werdermann from artefact gGmbHWrite a message

Hello dear people,
I am going to volunteer for 10 months at the organization Africycle in Zomba, Malawi from 16.11.2016 onwards.
Africycle has several bicycle workshops and shops all over the country where donated bicycles are repaired and sold to the local population in order to provide them with flexibility, often to make long-term school or work-life more comfortable or to live in a non-urban environment Possibility to give the infrastructures such as Schools, hospitals, etc. In addition, Africycle also organizes workshops in which people gain basic mechanical skills to build their own cycles to become more independent and flexible. My main task will be to work with the employees mechanics and to help out at the workshops.
The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for 75% of the costs incurred and 25% must be financed by donor group.
