Why bicycles for Malawi?

In Malawi, education is the key to unlocking a lifetime of greater earnings, better health, and stronger self-confidence. Our Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program (BEEP) is part of an innovative, integrated, and community-led plan to address many challenges facing Malawian students today.

71% of Malawians live on less than $2 USD per day1

Investing in girls to continue their education leads to increased lifetime earnings of 68%2

46% of Malawian children do not finish primary school3

Break the cycle of poverty

Empower girls with access to education and healthcare.

In their own words

Buffalo Bicycles are helping young Malawian mothers, the demographic most vulnerable to dropping out, return to school. Their educational success will improve the next generation’s lives too.
