Bicycles benefits education and healthcare

In Zambia, 15 year-old, Gladness and her classmates made headlines as they took their first rides on World Bicycle Relief bikes during a live filming of a bicycle delivery to their school.

In Tanzania, 24 women trained to become bicycle field mechanics for schools in their communities. They really are contributing to gender equality and it’s great to see that they help women become income earners and achieve more independence.

Co-Founders F.K. Day and Leah Missbach Day were named the recipients of the Chicago Humanitarian Award - a tremendous honour celebrating leaders contributing to the improvement of children’s lives.

In Australia, Sarah Wilson, author of ‘I Quit Sugar’ raised $60,000 to fund 2 schools in Zambia with bicycles.

In Indiana, Dave Schweikert completed 3,065 laps around a traffic roundabout to set a world record and raise $6,000+ for World Bicycle Relief. What an interesting fundraising idea!

In homes across the globe, supporters helped reach their goal of 500,000 bicycles ! Will you join us to help World Bicycle Relief mobilise more students, healthcare workers and farmers in remote areas in developing countries with life changing bicycles!

By simply owning a bicycle, a person’s value in the community rises. Girls who were once overlooked become figures of hope and motivation. Entrepreneurs are no longer restricted by where their feet can carry them. Volunteer health workers keep more people free of preventable diseases thanks to their two wheels.
