VIP Bikes Hanoi has always taken its Social Responsibility very seriously. VIP Bikes Hanoi is the business arm of VIP Bikes Social Enterprise, a non-profit training organisation that trains disadvantaged youth to be motorcycle mechanics.
Andrew Souto, a certified Australian mechanic and trainer, is invested in the Hanoi community, and works with Blue Dragon Children's Foundation to provide skills and a livelihood for young Hanoians with a desire to work in the motorcycle trade.
Bikes for Blue
VIP Bikes Hanoi has now introduced the “Bikes for Blue” initiative.
VIP Bikes will be tagging ‘Bikes for Blue’ as an initiative to support the anti-trafficking work of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. Part of the profits from the rental of these bikes will go towards the education and training of girls who have been rescued from the sex trade in China. Not only does Blue Dragon rescue children and young women from their places of slavery, it supports them by providing education, counselling and health care. VIP Bikes is proud to be giving these girls a life changing opportunity.
