Overview

Bikes for the World "re-cycles" used bikes to transform lives. We work with volunteers, community groups and businesses to collect, "prep", and donate bikes to non-profit partners around the world. These partners refurbish and channel the bikes to people who rely on them: for health workers to reach patients, students to get to school and workers to get to work. Bikes for the World is a community of people helping people.  Our vision is to achieve an ever-larger impact around the world by reducing waste and helping others earn more, learn more, and live more healthy lives.
