Poor children are often the most marginalized members of their communities. With the right tools, they have the potential to achieve great things and lead a successful life.
WHAT WE DO
The Three Pillars of One Bicycle Foundation
Long walks make simple tasks like going to school and work a struggle. Bicycles are the solution by providing a fast and safe mode of transportation.
Education means investing in one’s future. Access to education empowers a youth with the knowledge and tools to change their lives. Often in developing countries, the only barrier to an education, work and healthcare is distance and access.
One Bicycle Foundation has a three-part mission. First, we want to change lives through bicycle empowerment. Bicycles are powerful tools for change that provide access to education, jobs, and healthcare in regions where the lack of the aforementioned services leads to a continuous cycle of poverty. Geographical isolation of marginalized groups from vital opportunities is a widespread problem and the most cost effective solution is bicycles. Second, we want to motivate privileged students in our communities to help impoverished students across the globe. And third, we want to inspire the youth to combine their passion with charity. We want to challenge young people, through our presentations and media platforms, to tackle worldwide problems with their own curiosities, hobbies, and passions.
The purpose of this organization is to provide bicycles to impoverished children worldwide so they can have easier, safer, and faster access to school. One of the biggest barriers to education in developing countries is the physical act of getting to school such as distance, lost productive time, and harassment during the commute. Bicycles are the perfect solution to this problem. Bicycles change lives by connecting impoverished children to school and other vital economic opportunities.
