In the developed world we ride bicycles for pleasure. In the world's poorest countries where other forms of transportation are unaffordable, the bicycle can be an important tool in building a better life. Bicycles for Humanity's overall goal is to expand the work of its members, build more sustainable initiatives and programs and to mobilise and empower more of the world's poorest people.
