Mfangano Island, Kenya
Bicycles for Humanity Colorado is partnering with Organic Health Response (OHR) to bring bikes to this island in the heart of Lake Victoria.
The island is home to approximately 19,000 people and is a 3 hour boat ride from the mainland. Suffering an estimated 30% HIV rate, the island has one of the most critical concentrations of HIV/AIDS in the world.
OHR works to create a sustainable, holistic approach to stoping HIV/AIDS across the island. This approach includes creating access to food, education, healthcare and transportation.
With one road that circles the island, bikes are a perfect solution to the transportation problem.
