SPONSOR A CYCLE-RICKSHAW!

SPONSOR A CYCLE-RICKSHAW!

Cycle-rickshaw

Cycle-rickshaw

Thank you Martin, Kim, Marije, Roshnie and Rodee. Thanks to your financial contribution AMAIDI could order a new cycle-rickshaw, meant to start a service to transport old people and children on the way to their destination, from the beach village down the road to Puducherry (and back) for a low, nominal fee.

The rickshaw will be driven by a local rickshaw driver (as a means for livelihood for his family) against a fixed wage, whereas volunteers are asked to – voluntarily – cycle one or two hours to show their commitment with the project.

The outside of the rickshaw, sponsored by both (ex)volunteers and AMAIDI, will be painted white, with the names of the sponsors on it (of course) but also – from time to time – the name (and website or telephone number) of one of our partner organizations. To raise awareness in their field.

Now the rickshaw is being paid for, what we need are sponsors to pay for the driver’s monthly salary. As he gets a fixed renumeration – so he does not have to chase the customers – the fare fee goes towards maintenace of the vehicle and to the ‘project of the month’. If you like to help us realize this project, send us an email (click here) with the amount mentioned, payable as and when you’re here (in case you’re a coming volunteer). When you’re an ex-volunteer or simply not intending to come to India for it, we’ll send you the banking details.

Thank you in advance!

AMAIDI Foundation

The AMAIDI Foundation is AMAIDI's latest offshoot. AF is meant to support (ex)volunteers in their funding and implementing projects they support during or after their stay/work in India. For partners in India it is also an instrument that enables them to find (new) sponsors and donors to invest in their projects. And for donors to find the implementing agencies they need to realize their social targets/harvest their profit/social ROI
