World Bicycle Relief is a nonprofit organization transforming individuals and their communities through The Power of Bicycles.


Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.


To accomplish our mission we:



  • DESIGN, SOURCE & MANUFACTURE rugged bicycles engineered specifically for rural African terrain and load requirements

  • ASSEMBLE bicycles locally with proper tools and close attention to quality

  • DELIVER bicycles through Work-to-Own & Study-to-Own programs

  • ESTABLISH maintenance infrastructure by training local field mechanics

  • EVALUATE our work through independent studies

  • COMMUNICATE program results to donors and partners


A donation amount of €976.00 was requested for the following needs:

  • Contributions for Bicycles €400.00
  • Bicycles for Educational Empowerment €576.00
