World bicycle relief will now host bike zambia!
Starting in 2020 Bike Zambia will have a new home, World Bicycle Relief. WBR has been one of Chooda’s partners since the beginning and we have been thrilled to be a part of their growth and incredible impact in Zambia.
World Bicycle Relief (WBR) mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles by helping people conquer the challenge of distance to access education, healthcare, goods and services more easily. With a bicycle, school attendance is increased by 28% and healthcare providers are able to see 45% more patients. Bike Zambia riders have donated hundreds of bicycles to students and healthcare providers, making a real impact in people’s daily lives. Since 2012, Bike Zambia has supported the Bicycles for Educational Empowerment Program and STEPS OVC HIV/AIDS caregivers program by purchasing Buffalo Bicycles and donating them to local programs that help girls access education and school school and women access trade or business to support their families.
