For nearly nine million people in rural Colombia, walking is the primary mode of transportation. Students, health workers and entrepreneurs travel hours to reach schools, patients and markets. Distance is a barrier to progress, especially for women and girls. Only 17% of rural students attend secondary school and COVID-19 has only increased the urgent need for safe and reliable transportation.
That’s why we’re partnering with local organizations and companies to mobilize Colombian children and their families with life-changing Buffalo Bicycles.
