Countdown to Shipping: Matching Funds Crowdsourcing Campaign

Countdown to Shipment

On a recent visit to China, I finalized our first order of tricycles over an afternoon of tea drinking. We are partnering with Hebei Daijiang, who are based in Hebei Province, in a town about 200 km from Beijing.  The company, headed by Mr. Wang has been in operation since 2005, and now produces 300,000 three wheel electric vehicles.  The first container of 54 tricycle parts will be ready for shipment by the middle of November.  The company will send a mechanic to help train a local team to assemble them in Harare.

 As we countdown to final payment for our first container load of tricycles, a very big thank you to all that have already contributed to making this possible.  So far, we have raised $32,000.  The good news is now we have a generous donor who will match dollar dollar every donation. We really appreciate your efforts so far and welcome any additional support to reach the $50,000 target.
