Volunteers Requested for Container Loading to CESTA (El Salvador) - 8/5 - 8/7/2021

News released on: 
Jul 28th, 2021

Bikes Not Bombs is honored to ship another container of bikes and tools to CESTA in El Salvador from August 5-7, 2021!

Since 1987, CESTA has been one of the most effective environmental organizations in all of Latin America. They have promoted the use of bicycles as a sustainable method of transport through their novel programs such as "Sin Bicicleta, no Hay Planeta" (Without Bicycles, There Is No Planet). Similar to Bikes Not Bombs, CESTA also employs apprentices to recondition and repair donated bikes, and bikes brought in by customers. After completing their training, many of their apprentices gain employment as bike mechanics or establish bike shops in their communities. 

By shipping a container of bicycles and tools to CESTA, we are helping to lower pollution levels, reduce mobilization costs, empower youth, and improve the health conditions of their constituents in El Salvador.
