World Bicycle Relief

World Bicycle Relief is dedicated to providing access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles. Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities. WBR works to design, manufacture, and distribute bicycles to communities in across the African continent, while ensuring that changes are culturally appropriate, maximizing local sourcing, manufacturing or assembly whenever possible, partnering with existing non-governmental organizations and government and community based organizations, and training mechanics in maintenance and repair.
