Transport and development go hand-in-hand. Virtually everything traded, must be transported, and almost everyone needs wheels to get to work or school. Simple, affordable transport generated income opportunities in developing countries, as well as saving lots of time and back-breaking work.
In Britain, millions of bikes are thrown away or lie unused in sheds whilst many people in Africa have no access to transport of any kind. People spend hours each day walking to collect water, firewood or to access health care, school and employment.
A bicycle lightens this burden and dramatically improves the well-being as well as work and education opportunities helping to bring social change. A bicycle cuts travel time to a fraction and can carry passengers and heavy loads. Bikes give families the extra time to earn, learn and enjoy life.
My Aim with Re-Cycle
I am aiming to raise £1000 for Re-Cycle and more, I believe we can reach this target and please visit Re-Cycles social pages to spread the word
On average it costs
- £10 to source, grade, store and pack each bicycle, along with much needed parts
- £20 will help send 2 bicycles and parts
- £100 will help send 10 bicycles and parts
- £500 will help train community members how to repair bicycles – leaving a legacy for the community
