Bicycles for Humanity is a grassroots organization, a movement really, which is growing in many wild and wonderful ways. Initially, in 2006 they planned on sending one container of bicycles to Africa from communities in central British Columbia, but that quickly became four. The next year it grew to eight containers and hundreds of people having fun, pitching in and knowing that they have helped bring our world just a bit closer together.
LUSH has partnered with Bicycles for Humanity to ship containers filled with bicycles and bicycle parts to challenged parts of Uganda and Nimibia. Upon arrival, these containers are turned into Bicycle Empowerment Centers that distribute, repair and create local employment for the communities.
