Progetto uno

In Africa there is a limited but significant number of small health facilities, the Poste de Santé, Moreover, there are additional structures of International Aid and those related to the Church. Propeller resources are used to purchase and to deliver drugs at the most convenient price. The project was started spontaneously in 2007; when we personally realized the constant lack of basic drugs. Several packs have already been delivered and the number is constantly growing. However, the number of deliveries is subject to the financial resources actually available to purchase the medicines. With an adequate economical coverage, we would be able to deliver up to 300 packs per year. The project in based on a direct distribution to the Poste de Santé of life-saving drugs and medical tools, with a special attention to childhood diseases. The distribution takes place through a direct involvement of overland travelers to Africa, both for tourism and for business. The headquarter of Propeller is located in Milan, a focal point for European travelers to Africa. It is planned to open a subsidiary in Windhoek, Namibia for a more efficient distribution in the southern areas of the Continent. The packs are tracked until the delivery and a receipt proves their final destination. In some cases, the doctors receiving our packs send us updates about the delivery and stocks.

Progetto due

Pollution, land degradation and air, are issues that affect us all and future generations. It was decided, therefore, to develop an activity to reduce emissions of hydrocarbons. In recent years, numerous solutions have been developed in the trucking industry. The simplest and most economists expect the conversion of the classic internal combustion engine vehicles with electric vehicles, with high efficiency and with no direct emissions. Propeller, this project intends to disseminate these new ideas, facilitating meetings, gatherings, will be promoted research and assistance in converting cars to electric vehicles with high emissions to "ZeroEmission".
