Bicycles for Humanity

Got an old mountain of hybrid bike want to give to a good cause?

Then donate it to Bicycles for Humanity (www.bicyclesforhumanity.com) this Sunday 29th March from 1-5pm at 170 Edward Street, East Brunswick.

Your bike will be sent to Namibia where our partner BEN Namibia receives it. The shipping container becomes a Bicycle Empowerment Centre - a shipping container bike workshop. Clever, huh? It will provide skills training, business opportunities and employment for the community in which it is placed. Your bike will remove the tyranny of distance for the HIV aids remote care workers, amongst others, to whom the bicycles are distributed.

If you can’t get to Brunswick, get in touch with Andy at info@bicyclesforhumanity.com to arrange drop off to their Caulfield drop site.

You can tag your bike so that the recipient in Namibia can get in touch and let you know how you’ve changed their life. How good will that feel?
