At World Bicycle Relief, we mobilize people through the Power of Bicycles. Two wheels can open a new world of possibilities – especially in places where access to reliable transportation is a luxury. That’s why we help people in low-income regions of the world go after their dreams with life-changing bicycles. Armed with a rugged Buffalo Bicycle and support from their own communities, students, health workers and entrepreneurs can face challenges head on and thrive.
Thanks to the support of our incredible community, we’ve helped empower 640,000+ people so far!

For Malawi teen mothers Maggie and Febby and their friends, a bicycle can mean the difference between staying in school or not. Knowing that education equals a brighter future, for them and their daughters, these young mothers strive to finish their education despite an almost two-hour walk to school. The gift of two wheels might be the perfect answer.
If you’ve seen our Buffalo Bicycles in person, you know they’re pretty special. Buffaloes were designed specifically for the rugged terrain of rural low-income regions, where World Bicycle Relief partners with communities to distribute them to people in need of reliable transportation.
