Bring bikes to the ones in need
We aim to increase the independency and mobility of people in certain, mostly underdeveloped regions. By re-cycling and refurbishing the donated bikes in the Netherlands and transporting them abroad, we enhance and extend the value of the bikes. We aim for projects in regions where not only the individuals, but also the community gains by acquiring such bikes.
We believe in collaboration with local partners and focusing on specific regions abroad. Think global, act local.
By extending the bi-cycle of life we want to participate in a more sustainable world. Green is clean.
With fully transparent operations we give our donators and partners insight in our methods. Seeing is believing.
Free, green & healthy
Everyone should be able to get on a bike to cross distances for daily commute, going to school or visiting a family member. It will provide you with a free, green and healthy transport. You don’t have to tell us! We are ‘’Dutchies’’! We have more bikes than people!
Hence, the idea of starting social projects with underused bikes. Our social start-up wants to share that feeling of freedom we get when cycling, with the rest of the world.
Not a Charity, a world wide social bicycle network.
We don’t want to be seen as charity and advertise with poor children who don’t have chances in life. We want to give a rod in stead of a fish. We believe the bike is our rod and by making people more mobile they get better opportunities. Bringing bikes to a certain region will also mean these bike need to be maintained and fixed which can lead into employment. By not only giving the bikes but also the knowledge around bikes we want to create sustainable solutions for the whole community.
