Not For Profit

World Bicycle Relief mobilizes people through the Power of Bicycles. We envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.

Our robust Buffalo Bicycles are a cost-­effective and sustainable solution to overcome the challenges posed by long distances in the developing world.

We are a global Not‐For‐Profit that manages a highly refined bicycle supply chain from design through final distribution. We also work collaboratively with other non-profits (our field partners) to design, implement, and test large­‐scale bicycle programs. Funding for these activities comes increasingly from corporates in the automotive sector.

To date World Bicycle Relief has distributed over 260,000 bicycles and trained over 1,100 bike mechanics.

What we are looking for

Simple, sustainable bicycle transportation multiplies an individual's efficiency. Compared to walking, bikes improve access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. They increase carrying capacity x5 and accessible travel distance x4 while decreasing the time it takes to commute to schools, clinics and markets.

In the hands of an entrepreneur, healthcare worker or student, a bicycle is life changing. Individuals, communities, and entire economies are mobilized. On average, each bike improves five people's lives.

With six bicycle assembly facilities, World Bicycle Relief is empowering people across Africa by providing strong and durable Buffalo bicycles.

World Bicycle Relief has developed a Field Mechanics Training Program to accompany bicycle distribution; this ensures that bicycle owners have access to local, qualified maintenance and repair service.

To date we have distributed over 260,000 bicycles and trained over 1,100 bike mechanics.

Get involved and help us keep these numbers growing.
