// MECANO project

In fall 2013, a first container was shipped to Togo. It carried Cyclo Nord-Sud’s 45,000th bike and was shipped to The MECANO Project. Since then more than 2,000 bikes have been sent to Togo. The MECANO Project and Cyclo Nord-Sud have also entered a new stage of cooperation with the construction of a community center in Sanguéra focused on the distribution and sales of bicycles. The center will include a bicycle and spare parts shop, including a warehouse, a repair shop, and a bicycle mechanic training school. Some 900 people will benefit each year: those who purchase a bicycle or parts, and a dozen youths who will take part in each training cohort. Massanvi is one of those beneficiaries.
