Distribution Day: an example of what you’ll experience in Zambia.
Highlights of Your Field Trip
  • Build a Buffalo Bicycle with a local assembler.
  • Ride the bicycle you built alongside the people you’ve helped empower.
  • Discover how dairy co-op members are able to bring more milk to the co-op with a bicycle.
  • Hear from healthcare workers about the bicycle’s transformative power, as they visit more patients daily and spend more time with them.
  • Witness a young student ride off into a new world of opportunity at a bicycle distribution.
Your Rural Zambia Experience

During Field Trip: Zambia, you’ll witness what it’s like to race the sun as it rises and sets across the beautiful, Acacia-lined horizon. You’ll experience the vast, dusty distances that people travel each day by foot to reach schools, clinics and markets. You’ll also feel the dramatic difference that a strong, purpose-built Buffalo Bicycle makes in the life of a student or healthcare worker as you ride over the rugged terrain.

When you participate in a school bicycle distribution, you can expect to be greeted with a vibrant welcome – filled with music, dance and song. Joy will wash over you as you join the lively crowd assembled to celebrate.

After celebrating new bicycles and new beginnings, you’ll travel to the home of a student. There you’ll be embraced with welcoming smiles. As you settle into conversation, you’ll listen to stories about the real struggles of daily life in rural Zambia.

On this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you’ll see that despite the challenges Zambians face each day, they continue to find ways to thrive with bicycles. Come, be inspired – by the beauty of this rich landscape and by the resilience of the people you will meet.
