Cycling out of Poverty supports students, health volunteers, farmers and small entrepreneurs with bicycles to improve access to basic needs and services as education, health care, work and income. We believe that a bicycle makes a difference in this world and is a huge contributor to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Our mission is to improve livelihood of African families by making bicycles and other mobility aids (such as wheelchairs, bicycle ambulances and cargo bikes) accessible and available for everyone in Africa.Every person has a right to fair and equal access to income, education, health care and food. It is unacceptable that still 1 on every 5 people lives in extreme poverty (less than € 1 per day). Also these people should have a chance to have a fair access to income opportunities, health care, education and food. But accessibility to these basic needs and services is for many people in Africa a huge challenge. In areas where most people rely on walking a bike makes the difference. A bicycle can break the vicious circle of poverty because it offers people in Africa the opportunity to climb (or cycle) out of poverty.We are committed to support these people in need, with bicycles and other mobility aids. We combine our charity efforts through our growing number of fundraising affiliate members in the North and our social enterprises Bikeventures and Green Hub Shop in Kenya and Uganda to distribute more bicycles and other mobility aids.
