BIKES FOR AFRICA

Some donated bikes could be forwarded to Re-Cycle.org in Colchester. They  have sent over 112,500 bikes to Africa over the past 21 years.

A bicycle can make a massive difference

to a person living in rural Africa.

  • Education:  Bikes help to keep children in school.  
    A bicycle can cut journey times by as much as 75% which means students can travel in safety to and from school with energy left to learn and time left to rest. 

  • Health:  Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.   A bike can help a single person carry 5 times the amount of clean water.

  • Livelihoods:   A bike can increase the income of a family in Africa by 35%.  Anything traded, must be transported.  A bike opens up lots of possibilities to traders. 

  • Training:   Local people are trained to provide cycle care and  maintenance skills.  98% of cycles are in use after 3 years
