Velafrica will be our guest at the Holiday and Travel Fair
At the Holiday and Travel Fair Bern, you can donate your bicycle to Velafrica. The organisation collects second-hand bicycles and has them repaired in social-enterprise workshops in Switzerland before exporting them to Africa.
As a study conducted by Velafrica shows, bicycles make it easier for people in Africa to access education and healthcare, and also open up economic opportunities. Those who own a bicycle can carry considerably more and cover much greater distances – they therefore gain more time for learning or for working their land.
Do you wish to support Velafrica? Then bring along your ‘retired’ bicycle to the Holiday and Travel Fair Bern. You will be granted direct access to the fair at the entrance and can park your bicycle in the designated area by the entrance area.
