About us

World Bicycle Relief is a non-profit organization providing access to independence and livelihood through The Power of Bicycles. World Bicycle Relief has trained more than 2,000 field mechanics and provided more than 420,000 specially designed, locally assembled bicycles to school children healthcare workers and entrepreneurs.

World Bicycle Relief is transforming individuals and their communities through The Power of Bicycles. Our Buffalo Bicycles are very robust and simple bicycles especially designed for rural development regions. They are granted through "work-to-own" or "study-to-own" programs or purchased by non-government organisations, corporations or individuals in need of reliable transportation in order to reach clean water, education, healthcare, markets and jobs. European donations fund the Bicycle Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP). This program provides bicycles to rural students (70% girls) enabling them to get to school, access education and livelihood. The results show a significant impact: girls attendance rates are increasing by 28% and academic performance by 59%.

Ich habe 15.347,90 € Spendengelder erhalten

Bildung ist immer der Anfang, um langfristig einen Weg aus der Armut zu finden. In ländlichen Entwicklungsregionen sind die Entfernungen zur Schule jedoch für Kinder zu Fuß oft kaum zu schaffen. Vor allem Mädchen, die im Haushalt meist deutlich mehr Aufgaben übernehmen als Jungen, gehen deshalb manchmal gar nicht zur Schule.
Indem wir Kindern, insbesondere Mädchen, Fahrräder zur Verfügung stellen, stärken wir sie auf ihrem Weg zu einem Schulabschluss, der letztlich ihr ganzes Leben beeinflusst. In die Schulbildung von Mädchen zu investieren, bedeutet den Teufelskreis der Armut zu durchbrechen. Gebildete Mädchen nutzen ihr späteres Einkommen für ihre Familien und achten wiederum auf die Schulbildung ihrer eigenen Kinder. 

Die "Back-to-School" Aktion finanziert Fahrräder für Bildungsprogramme in Sambia.
