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 their wellbeing 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.
Re~Cycle is a UK charity committed to improving life prospects through the provision of cheap, sustainable transport in Africa. The charity has now sent more than 70,000 bikes to Africa.
They are looking for people to join Team Re~Cycle in 2017. It’s a great chance to challenge yourself, have fun and help send more bikes to their partners across Africa.
