Mission Statement

Transforming lives through unwanted bicycles.

Description

Millions of unwanted bicycles are rusting in garages or being thrown away in the UK while
in Africa, a four-hour daily walk is common - mothers collecting clean water, parents
trekking to the farm, factory or market, or children facing a 20 mile walk to school and
back. Motorised transport, where available, typically costs a quarter of people's tiny
income.

Re~Cycle collects second-hand bikes, parts and tools in the UK and ships them to places
like Ghana, Liberia, Namibia, and South Africa. There our partners teach local people how
to repair and maintain the bikes, helping them to improve their lives in a sustainable way.
