A bicycle, one of the simplest transport technologies, is affordable and can be maintained anywhere in the world with minimal tools and spare parts. Yet for the world’s poorest people, living on $1 per day, even bicycles are beyond their reach. Meanwhile, in the western world, we discard thousands of bicycles each year.

The math becomes simple and in the hands of a healthcare worker. They can cover four times the ground than on foot. This translates into four times the number of patient visits and four times the number of medication disbursements.

The possibilities are endless and we can help fulfill a basic need: to provide a distribution vehicle for improved healthcare for those too far from formal health care facilities.

It costs between $13K-$15K to collect bikes, purchase a shipping container and ship it to Africa. 100% of donations go toward our mission.

 We are a 501(c)3 registered non-profit so your donation is fully tax-deductible.

Got a bike? If you have a bike you want to donate take this quick test:

Can you ride/pedal it?

Can you stop it?

If you answered “yes” to both these questions, we want your bike!
