World Bicycle Relief NFPChicago, Illinois
World Bicycle Relief is a nonprofit organization transforming individuals and their communities through The Power of Bicycles. We supply quality bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in developing regions of the world where distance is a challenge. We envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity. - - - The Need - For many in the developing world, walking is the primary mode of transportation. Add the challenge of distance and seemingly simple tasks of going to school, visiting the clinic, or bringing goods to market become difficult and sometimes impossible as people struggle against time and fatigue.

We train field mechanics to ensure access to maintenance and spare parts and also sell our Buffalo Bicycles to those in need of affordable, sustainable transportation.
