How B4H Cycling Academy  can help grow Rotary and retain members.

Hi, my name is  Pat Montani and I have been a Rotarian for the last 13 years. I believe that  Rotary is one of the  greatest organizations  on  earth  for doing good.   For all the people in the developing  world reading this, Rotary is a must and a great way to connect yourself  and your community to the world.  The Rotary marketing  material on the  right will  provide you with a bit more  information and knowledge about  Rotary and the  benefits of joining.  We believe there are thousands of Rotary members in Africa that  might want to also be  great Bicycle and Skills Empowerment Centre leaders.


In addition to being a Rotarian, I am also the founder of Bicycles for Humanity, a grassroots organization  that  has delivered over 155,000 bicycles to 13 African Countries, with over 40,000 of the bikes going to Community Health Workers.  Again, Rotary has been a big part of the success, both here with clubs collecting and delivering   bikes to Africa and in Africa, where  many Rotary clubs play a key role in the distribution and  management of the bike programs.  Rotarians globally share the same  high standards and code of conduct and with Rotary and Rotaract clubs being in every country globally and in every community,  they are an incredible partner  for anyone who wants to  help others  and is looking for a way to make this happen.


Today, in Africa, we have over 400 communities  asking us if we can provide a container of bike to their community.  Feeling  bad about this, we asked the elders what  else they wanted and the answer was better education , better healthcare and opportunity for their people.   In many parts of Africa, there are few teachers,  with many not being paid and a real shortage of books and other learning material.  In the developed world we all have access to high speed internet and   the  incredible content and training material online , but in the developing world  the internet is slow and expensive.  This gave us the idea to put the best of the internet  online   in PDF formaton and the   hd video learning material  on a  memory stick to share  with  community leaders across all of Africa and  share with anyone who has a computer. Our SEC, Skills Empowerment Centre model has been a huge success and today, every Rotarian globally can share it with anyone  at no cost.


Having  worked with and been a part of Rotary for all these years, we recognized the incredible value  that Rotary and Rotarians have globally to help  deliver better  mobility,education , healthcare and opportunity to all globally.  Rotarians  globally  are already assisting us   in telling the story of the online university,  of helping  us distribute  the sticks to every corner of the globe.  Others are creating new course's and mentoring  as we  strive to provide  free  education and opportunity to all. Rotary is a  very big part of my life and that ofB4H Cycling Academy and I strongly recommend that you take the time to  explore Rotary, to visit a club and to find how  you  and your community can benefit through, you will not be disappointed.


 Thank you for  taking the time to  review this  website.  All the resources on this site are free and we encourage you to  send  the web site out to anyone or any group that you think will benefit from it.  We also encourage you to get involved , mentor, create content, inspire others.  Most important, Rotary  is that one organization that you can truly make a difference  to the lives of so many and we encourage every Rotarian and Rotaract member to join us on this journey to change the world. Together we can  with the online program  help train community health workers globally, plus help all develop new skills.
