World Bicycle Relief: The Power of Bicycles

World Bicycle Relief mobilises people through The Power of Bicycles. Their vision is for a world where distance is no longer a barrier to independence and livelihood.

World Bicycle Relief (WBR) builds and distributes specially-designed, locally assembled, rugged bicycles. With the experience and expertise gained over the last 10 years designing and delivering more than 400,000 Buffalo Bicycles, WBR has developed an efficient, innovative and scalable model to successfully address the great need for reliable, affordable transportation in rural areas of developing countries.

For many people in rural regions of developing countries, poverty is a daily reality. In areas where walking is the only mode of transport, a Buffalo Bicycle offers the real and immediate benefit of reliable access to essential goods and services. Powered by the remarkable human spirit, bicycles are a catalyst to possibilities.

WBR's innovative model, combining philanthropic distributions with social enterprise sales, is the backbone on which they are able to deliver greater efficiencies of scale, distribute more bicycles per donation and generate deeper impact where they work.

When you provide a bicycle, people are empowered with the opportunity to make choices. Over time, bicycles enrich the lives of children, households and entire communities.

Give the Power of Bicycles and donate to World Bicycle Relief.
