OUR MISSION
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.
