“AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE TRANSPORTATION IS NO DOUBT ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE, BUT UNRECOGNIZED TOOLS OF RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT WORK. A BICYCLE IS AN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION IN AN INDIVIDUAL’S LIFE.”
F. K. DAY, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT, WORLD BICYCLE RELIEF
With a bicycle, a person can go four times farther and carry five times more than by walking. This allows farmers to transfer more products for selling, children to have easier access to education sites, families to more easily reach healthcare units, and much more.
We invented an innovative process of joining bamboo poles with recycled plastic bottles. Because these materials are widely available, this allows people in developing countries to build quality bicycles at a reduced cost while also earning a fair wage.
We will begin production and distribution in Uganda and spread to different developing countries as well as western markets. This can be easily done because the needed materials are widely available
and helps many people to benefit from it.
