Give a bike, change a life World Bicycle Relief empowers entire communities with life-changing mobility
Every day, people in rural regions across the globe travel miles on foot to access education, markets, health facilities, and other vital services. World Bicycle Relief provides purpose-built Buffalo Bicycles to people facing the challenge of distance so they can realize their goals and create opportunities for themselves and their communities. These bikes help students get to school, health workers to patients, farmers to market, and more.
We’re raising $2.5 million for World Bicycle Relief
Last year, thanks to people like you, we raised $1.8 million for World Bicycle Relief. This year, we’re gearing up to raise $2.5 million more. Want to help? A donation of $165 gets one purpose-built Buffalo Bicycle to someone who needs it, but any amount helps.
And now through December 31, Trek will match all donations up to $500,000, so you can double your impact.
Meet a few program participants
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 spend time with his family.
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.
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.
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.
