Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne
Logo for Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne

Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne is a voluntary, not-for- profit organisation that collects disused bicycles and ships them to communities in need. The bicycles change lives forever by improving basic mobility for access to health care and education, and increasing economic productivity. The container then becomes a pre-built bicycle workshop providing employment opportunities.

Every year around 1.5 million bicycles are sold across Australia. It is estimated that around half of these will end up unused or abandoned. By unlocking the value in recycled bicycles, Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne enables a sustainable model which improves access to basic human needs within African communities.
