Bicycles for Humanity International (B4H) is a world wide, grass roots, volunteer run organisation focused on simple, sustainable empowerment in the developing world. We do this in the most transparent and practical way – by sending used donated bikes from the developed world to our partner organisations in various countries in need. A bike allows someone to travel twice as far, twice as fast and to carry four times the load. In the countries in which we work a bike can mean access to education, health care, fresh water, economic opportunity and community. Breaking the cycle of poverty by providing sustainable transport for one person, impacts not only their life, but also the lives of their families, communities and future generations. Now a team of part time volunteers is working in Perth collecting bikes, preparing them for shipment, packing them in containers, raising much needed funding for container and shipping costs, AND having fun doing it. B4H WA shipped its first container of bikes to Namibia in October 2011. The team has set itself a goal of 2 shipments per year, thereafter.
