Bicycles Against Poverty distributes bikes in Uganda that help with access to basic needs of life, such as transportation to health clinics, clean water, markets to trade goods, and schools. Each participant pays back for the bikes in monthly installments, just a few dollars per month, to eventually own the bicycle.

The bike beneficiaries attend two free workshops, a bicycle repair seminar and a money management workshop, which are both taught by local community leaders. These bicycles will serve as a tool for income generating activities, community cooperation, and access to social services – such as healthcare. || Facebook || Twitter
