Be Love

Bicycles for Humanity is a global grassroots movement that provides the gift of mobility delivered by a bicycle to many in developing and developed worlds. In addition to delivering bicycles, many B4H groups work with the local people to develop the skills to manage the bike programs and to ensure that the community realizes maximum value from the gifts of mobility that our chapters and inspired members provide. Today, many of our partners in the developing world, Uganda, South Africa, Malawi, Ghana, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, Tanzania and Kenya are mentoring and teaching other communities the skills to successfully manage bicycle initiatives, just as many chapters teach new chapters the program here. We are a pure global grassroots movement and we will always be, made up of individuals who share our goal of grassroots and empowerment that a bicycle can provide. We encourage you to start a chapter, provide the gift of mobility, globally and locally, join our movement and help those in need of mobility, gain a better life.

Be Hope

Bicycle solves the problem of mobility and helps empower people to change their life. The mobility a bicycle provides allows people to travel greater distances in a shorter length of time and transport much more weight. Mothers can carry containers of water back to their village in a fraction of the time. Students get to school faster saving precious daylight for studies. Parents transport more items to the market to sell at far better prices than they can get from local traders. Healthcare workers are 3 to 4 times more productive. In today’s technology connected world, we believe that a bicycle and a smartphone are the game changers in all of the developing world. Sending a container of 500 bikes, empowers an entire community, changing thousands of lives in the developing world and your world at home. Deep down, everyone wants a better life and helping others helps ourselves.

Be Change

B4H Chapters raise funds, collect bicycles and ship them to community-based organizations in developing countries. Bicycles are delivered in shipping containers that remain in the country and become community bicycle workshops called Bicycle Empowerment Centres. 100% of all donations are used to get bikes into the hands of those who need them. Today we are the largest globally at providing the gift of mobility a bicycle can deliver, having sent over 330,000 bikes and we still have not spent a single cent on any overhead, staffing or administration. We are a pure grassroots volunteer movement with an incredible skill set here and in the developing world on how to manage bike projects successfully and change lives.

B4H volunteers have created over 50 chapters in 8 countries in the last 15 years. To date, 200 plus Bicycle Empowerment Centres have been created in 13 countries. Since its inception in 2005, more than 325,000 bikes have been shipped to developing countries and hundreds trained in how to manage the bike initiatives for the betterment of all in their community. We also believe that bikes help many in our communities and Bicycles for Humanity plays a big role in helping get bikes to groups that fix them and distribute those bikes to people in need locally. The combined skill sets of our chapters and partners in the developed and developing world are our greatest strength. We have the experience to ensure success globally for all and we are all volunteers. We are a global movement and we support and encourage, everyone to join us and to support our partner programs, helping all with the power of a bike to change lives, globally is what we are about.
