Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can 
change the world.  Indeed it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called." ~ Buckminster Fuller ~


The founders of Bicycles for Humanity are entrepreneurs first and believe  that  with the right skills, anything is possible. We also believe that it is important for all to give back to their  communities, empowering others and together making a difference.   This site  will provide you with a tremendous resource  to not only learn new skills, but ones that will benefit everyone in your community. If you are  interested in an a Skills Empowerment Centre, then we will teach you what is important  and show you how you can reach out to  the global cycling community to gain support.


Bicycles for Humanity  does this by providing a model and a process that has proven extremely effective in the globally connected world. The model and process enables everyone   to unleash their social and  entrepreneurial spirit and initiative to pursue their dreams. Our goal is to inspire everyone to build profitable, sustainable business's while giving back to society.  Today, some 10 million good  bicycles each year end  up in landfills and  a handfull of great organiations rescue  about 25,000 of these bikes for  delivery  to the developing world, when the number should be millions. We realized that to grow the number of bikes, the key was education, groups in Africa  wanting bikes  needed better skills  to work with   chapter teams  here. Groups here needed  access to partners they could  count on and we all needed a way to  more efficiently work together. In Africa today, there are many great teams  and community  bike projects needing bikes, they have the resources ,but not the network with the skills to make this happen.   Weunderstand the skills needed to build programs  from the start with no money.  The learning programs on thissite  are focused on helping anyone in the developing world move forward, building great programs for their communities and opportunity for themselves.  


Rewarding and  celebrating  social  entrepreneurs and people who want to make a difference is what  Bicycles for Humanity  and it's global team are  all about.  Together we can make a difference  in an accountable, efficient, socially responsible  and  exciting way, while increasing  the number of bikes going to Africa into the millions each year.


B4H Cycling Academy  delivers programs that teach skills    that create opportunity for a better life.   If  you are interested in a Bicycle Empowerment Centre for your community,, 500 bikes  or a Skills Empowerment Centre, 12   high end bikes, for your team, then  the courses to teach you how to make  this happen are all here. Our online  testing module ensures that the student has learned the  skills needed and we accredit them  after they have passed our various programs.   We believe this accountable inspired entrepreneuraial model  will scale  globally  providing    millions with  access to bicycles,  opportunity and a better life.


Bicycles for Humanity, it's sister  program iEmpowerment and Ekokwa.com are all focused on helping the  poorest and most marginalized gain a better life and access to opportunity.  In a developing world, where it is  costly to borrow money, where fee have  assett's that a bank will hold, we will show you how to use our internet based apps to create  added value and opportunity for yourself and your team.
