Our Mission

World Bicycle Relief’s mission is to provide people in need with access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles. People in developing nations suffer every day due to lack of transportation: without access to education and economic opportunity, people live in poverty; without access to healthcare, people die of preventable diseases and minor injuries.  Bicycles are a simple, sustainable way to bridge the transportation gap between needs and resources.

Compared to walking, the only transporation available to many people in developing countries, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities.

We accomplish our mission by designing, sourcing and manufacturing bicycles designed to withstand African terrain and conditions while meeting the needs of students, healthcare workers, farmers and entrepreneurs. We encourage local economies and promote long-term sustainability by locally assembling bicycles, training mechanics, strengthening the spare parts supply chain, and providing high-quality, affordable bicycles to people in need of transportation.
