World Bicycle Relief mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles. They are committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence and thrive.
For many people in rural regions of developing countries, poverty is a daily reality. In areas where walking is the only mode of transport, a Buffalo Bicycle offers the real and immediate benefit of reliable access to essential goods and services. Powered by the remarkable human spirit, bicycles are a catalyst to possibilities.
Their innovative model, combining philanthropic distributions with social enterprise sales, is the backbone on which they deliver greater efficiencies of scale, distribute more bicycles per donation and generate deeper impact where they work.
WBR has since built programs to provide specially designed, locally assembled bicycles for students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs across Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. While the bicycles themselves help individuals conquer distance and increase their carrying capacity, WBR has also created new economic opportunities by training field mechanics and employing bike assemblers to support our local programs.
We’ve partnered with World Bicycle Relief to help provide access to education and independence in rural Africa through the Power of Bicycles. Every time you purchase a home with Sean Hahn, we’ll donate a Buffalo Bicycle to World Bicycle Relief. Together we can make a world of a difference.
