Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Countless bicycles are discarded or sit unused in basements or garages in the United Statesr. But in a developing country, a bicycle can truly change the life of an individual, her family and her community. Bicycling is, of course, a form of personal transportation. But bicycles are also used for hauling cargo, and even as a source of electricity through the creation of pedal-powered machines! In areas plagued by poverty, high levels of unemployment and lack of reliable, accessible transportation, a bicycle can provide access to jobs, education, medical attention, and other resources. Global Impact: Working Bikes ships thousands of bicycles each year to our partners in countries throughout Latin America and Africa including, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Uganda, Ghana, and many others. Local Impact: Working Bikes partners with homeless transition, refugee resettlement, and youth empowerment programs in Chicago to donate bicycles and put them to good use on the streets of our own community. Working Bikes donates about 6000 bicycles each year to our international and local partners.
