Donate to World Bicycle Relief and help empower entire communities with bikes

World Bicycle Relief provides purpose-built Buffalo Bicycles to people in rural regions across the globe who often have to walk long distances to accomplish everyday tasks. Since 2005, Buffalo Bicycles have helped kids get to school, health workers to patients, and farmers to market.

A donation to World Bicycle Relief in any amount helps under-resourced communities get the tools they need to conquer the challenge of distance and realize their goals.

Four reasons to give to World Bicycle Relief

You’ll help children get an education

Education is the great equalizer for rural children, but distance can be a barrier. Bicycles help students overcome any challenges they may face getting to school.

You’ll help increase access to healthcare

With two wheels, health workers are saving lives. They're working to combat COVID-19, eliminate malaria, teach health and nutrition, and visit more homebound patients.

You’ll help boost local economies

On a bicycle, farmers and entrepreneurs can increase their carrying capacity, earn more income, and improve the quality of life for their families and communities.

You’ll help improve the lives of women and girls

Investing in women and girls will change the world. With bicycles, they can access education, healthcare, and livelihoods to break the cycle of poverty and thrive.

Wozani, village head

Wozani travels 10km a day to spread news within the community and mediate disputes in the traditional court. His bicycle helps him fulfill his leaderly duties and gives him extra time to perform income-generating activities and connect with his family.

Smile, student

Smile, whose favorite subject is math, dreams of becoming an accountant someday. Because her bicycle significantly reduces her travel time, she now has the energy to pay attention in class and gain the education she needs to pursue her dream.

Levison, conservation ranger

Levison wakes early each morning to protect communities against predators such as lions and hyenas. He travels up to 30km per day, and his bicycle helps him cover more distance in less time.

Locadia, childcare worker

Locadia plays a vital role in the community as a mother, childcare worker, and women’s savings group facilitator. Thanks to her bicycle, she can access more community members than ever before.
