Bicycles Against Poverty

Inspired by personal experiences in Uganda, Bicycles Against Poverty was founded by Muyambi Muyambi, after moving to the USA in 2007. “I grew up in a nation where few have the chance to own a bicycle. It’s a simple vehicle, but it saves lives in times of need. Bicycles also mean access to markets for trade giving people the opportunity to earn an income; they mean a ride to school for education, and transportation to clean water sources. Bicycles mean freedom, empowerment, and opportunity.” Since setting up Bikes Against Poverty, 830 bicycles have been distributed to low income families in Uganda, a country where 40% of the rural population still lives in poverty.
