BENEFITING: WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF NFP
World Bicycle Relief is dedicated to providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles.
Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.
We accomplish our mission by:
•Working with suppliers to improve bicycle design while ensuring all changes are culturally appropriate
•Enhancing distribution with local sourcing, manufacturing or assembly whenever possible
•Partnering with existing non-governmental organizations and government and community based organizations
•Training mechanics in maintenance and repair while strengthening the existing supply of spare parts
•Measuring and evaluating the impact of bicycles and communicating the results to improve programs and increase awareness
