Center of Bicycle Technology

Maya Pedal is a Guatemalan NGO based in San Andrés Itzapa. We accept bikes donated from the USA and Canada which we either recondition to sell, or we use the components to build a range of “Bicimaquinas“, (pedal powered machines).

Pedal power can be harnessed for countless applications which would otherwise require electricity (which may not be                     available) or hand power (which is far more effort). Bicimaquinas are easy and enjoyable to use. They can be built using locally     available materials and can be easily adapted to suit the needs of local people. They free the user from rising energy costs, can be used anywhere, are easy to maintain, produce no pollution and provide healthy exercise.

We make water pumps, grinders, threshers, tilemakers, nut shellers, blenders (for making soaps and shampoos as well as food products), trikes, trailers and more.

Ten Environmental Victories

Isnt it intriguing that many, if not most indigenous peoples in the world hold some special connection to the land? One that is characterized by a notion of stewardship in the name of the ancestors, for the children in honour of a sacred force from nature?

A reflexive Missionary coming to terms with hhe pis own mission and his own faith. The point here is not to direct people from their faith necessarily, if you believe that your faith helps you to be a happier better and more consious person I want you to continue with practising. The purpose for uploading this video is to share a story to teach humility. In this story the reversal takes place in a situation that historically was the beginning of the colonization of the minds of people all over the world. Thats why missionaries traveled abroad. They never listened, they always spoke. They had the opportunity to learn from the wealth of human experience, but they only learned the language of the Other in order to impose their own views. To me that is a crime. See what happens to this man who could not help but listen.
