This gift helps us deliver a quality used bicycle to a new owner delivering affordable transportation to students, farmers, and health care workers around the world.


Famta is a young mother and a farmer from Guinea-Bissau. She uses her bike to increase her family's income and to ensure her newborn receives important vaccines and checkups. "The bike does not only alleviate the distance stress I used to go through, but it also preserves my health as I was feeling wearing out while frequently trekking. The bike I have purchased  helps increase my output in farming and other associative activities. My social wellbeing seems to have improved as can even visit other family members and relatives in the distant villages travelling on a bike."

Bikes keep students in school and families together. Your donation of $100 will help us deliver bikes and helmets to an entire family in the Philippines.

Ron and Sherman

For Ron and Sherwin a bicycle could be the difference between graduating and not finishing school at all. The boys admit it would be easier many days to just not go to school, but they also know the importance of education. Their parents did not finish school and struggle to find work to make ends meet. When Sherwin asked his mom for a bicycle to make the trip to school easier, she had to tell him the family could not afford it. Because of Bikes for the World, both boys now have bikes and arrive to school on time and ready to learn.
