spreading THE POWER OF BICYCLES
World Bicycle Relief works with partners to help communities create long-lasting, sustainable change and break the cycle of poverty. Our programs provide specially designed, locally assembled Buffalo Bicycles to students, health workers and entrepreneurs. Funds from our global supporters enable innovative programming, delivery of bicycles to people in need, and constant evaluation of our impact.
MARKET DEMAND FOR MORE
When people in the communities we serve saw the strength and durability of our rugged bicycles, the local demand for high-quality transportation grew exponentially. In 2008, World Bicycle Relief formed subsidiary Buffalo Bicycles Ltd., creating an innovative hybrid model in which the nonprofit wholly owns a for-profit that sells bicycles to other nonprofits, businesses, local governments and individuals to meet this increasing market demand.
