Why Bikes?

When walking is your only option for getting about, life can be hard. People living in rural Africa often walk for miles each day to fetch water, or to get to school or work. A bike can change someone's life.

When just getting somewhere can be a whole adventure!

In some parts of Africa it can take up to 4 hours to get to school, water or other necessities. We provide used bikes from the UK to people in rural Africa who need them and we teach them how to maintain them. 

Giving people more time to earn, learn and enjoy life.
