They will be pedaling 1000 miles to raise over 1000 pounds for SiKanda, a start-up organisation that they know and that they believe in. They were the first members of the Hub Oaxaca in Mexico.
“The project we’re supporting is a new initiative using worms in an ingenious way to generate economic independence for some of Mexico’s most marginalized people.
SiKanda supports families who work off the municipal rubbish dump in Oaxaca. Every penny we raise will go to a project providing young people on the dump with worm composting units so they can collect organic waste and turn it into compost to sell. Through this they will gain new skills, new independence and a vital extra income that will help them take their next steps towards a better life. It’s a brilliant micro-enterprise working for those who are literally feeding off the bottom of Mexican society. SiKanda will also be using the funds to launch an educational campaign about waste.”

TODAY, they are having the leaving drinks/ campaign launch at 6pm at the Hub ( Islington), where they will tell us more about it.
