Bicycles for Humanity has traditionally shipped 40 foot containers of bicycles, through a program we call BEC's or Bicycle Empowerment Centres. Here grassroots chapter groups, organize, manage the logistics of collecting 500 bikes , loading them into a container and shipping it to one of our partners in Africa.
500 bikes changes an entire community and our chapter teams work hard to help our partners learn the skills of bike maintenance, service snd support and how to create an economy around bikes. If you are a new chapter or are interested in being an African partner, then the B4H Academy courses that relate to how our bike programs owrk are ideal for you.
We encourage all to start a Bicycles for Humanity Chapter and send a full container of bikes, BEC's are incredible valuable to the people receiving them and the joy of the journey for you, will be memorable and change your life in a very positive way.
