    Changing Lives

    A bike is more than transportation, it can empower individuals and entire communities.

    Keeping Students in School

    Many students face long walks to school, donated bikes get them there faster and help them stay in school.

  • Village Bicycle Project

    Transforming Communities

    Donated bikes allow health workers to see more clients, farmers to get goods to market and small business owners to support their families.

Changing lives one bike at a time.
