The B4H Cycling Academy model fits ideally into Rotary and tremendous benefit is realized by Rotary by having members become engaged with Bicycles for Humanity's Bicycle and Skills Empowerment Centre programs.
1. Every Rotarian can send the www.b4hcyclingacademy.com link to any person or organization at no cost giving that person access to better mobility,education, healthcare and opportunity. Every interaction is a way for Rotary to show the world its strength. We think that every Rotary club should send an iEmpowerment stick to their International project as an add on to help change the world, there is a small cost to purchase the sticks.
