The project is a joint initiative from the 3 Rotary Clubs in the Geraldton region, Geraldton, Geraldton-Greenough and Batavia Coast. The clubs are collecting "Old" or "Unwanted" Bicycles to donate to Bicycles for Humanity.
If you have an old bike that you no longer use, why not give it a new life and send it to someone in need. You can contact any 3 of the clubs to organise to drop off your bike or have someone come collect it from you.
We know a bike is a life changing object the world over.
In the developing world it is life changing on a different scale. It allows access to health care, education, economic opportunity and wider community.
Sustainable transport is a big lever in breaking the poverty cycle - a bike means you can travel twice as far, twice as fast and carry four times the load - this alone is enough to provide a change in circumstance that is profound and lasting but there's more to this project than just that.
Each of the 40 ft shipping containers that Bicycles For Humanity sends becomes a bike workshop - providing employment, skills, training, business, opportunity and economic development for the community in which it's placed.
Each of these Bicycle Empowerment Centres (BEC) becomes a self sustaining entity - fitting very cleanly into the model of micro-financed small business that is lately seen as one of the central ways for the developing world to move away from aid dependence.
Thank you for your supporting our clubs and helping Bicycles for Humanity.
Bikes can be dropped at Cramer and Neill anytime Mon-Fri 8am – 5pm, or at Paint Place in the Homemaker centre Mon-Fri 8am – 5pm.
Alternatively we are organising a collection day on Friday the 21st April 2017 where we will come pick up your bike from you. If you need your bike collected you can get in touch with
