Balkar Bringa bike shop is our special supporter from 1st January 2018.
We launched our project ‘+1 Sandwich – Students for people in need’ in April 2016.
The aim of this project is to support homeless people and those temporary, day, night shelters which do not provide dining – with high school students. Our medium-term aims are the sensitization of students, continuous communication with schools and propagation of volunteering. We visit the participating schools and we introduce the program, the Bike Maffia organisation and the importance of volunteering in an 1-1.5 hour interactive, sensitizing lecture.
One of our long-term plan is to bring together the participating schools with the shelters of +1 Sandwich for a common experience day. We put a premium on demonstration of the fact that
even a small things – like a sandwich – is enough to significantly support bigger group of people thanks to our cooperation. Our plan is to built a strong, supporting community from the students who are participating the +1 sandwich project. Additionally, one of the Bike Maffia’s main commitment is to increase the volunteering activity of the students involved in this project.
With the help of 38 schools, we delivered 50 000 portion food, fruit and dessert to homeless shelters in the year of 2016 and 2017.
