Bicycles for Humanity

Bicycles for Humanity

“Bicycles for Humanity take disused bikes and puts them to great use in developing countries. There are chapters all around the world to donate your bike and time to.”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“In the developed world we ride bicycles for pleasure. In the world’s poorest countries where other forms of transportation are unaffordable, the bicycle can be an important tool in building a better life. Bicycles for Humanity’s overall goal is to expand the work of its members, build more sustainable initiatives and programs and to mobilise and empower more of the world’s poorest people.”
