BEN Bikes | Bicycling Empowerment Network
Hier finden Sie die Gedanken von BEN Bikes in eigenen Worten:
BEN’s mission is providing access to opportunities through the use of a bicycle – giving hope and a step up to those who need it most. We need your help to make this a reality.
Bicycles allow learners to travel to and from school three times faster than they would by walking, which in turn leads to increased academic performance at school and lower rates of absenteeism.
Access to Basic Services
Bicycles allow access to basic services such as healthcare, especially in rural communities, where people live far from hospitals. Community healthcare workers using bicycles are also able to attend to double the amount of patients than they would on foot.
Unemployed individuals are inspired to utilise bicycles as a means of income to improve their financial situation or support their families, through service delivery or bicycle repair.
Cycling is an affordable means of mobility, allowing people to easily commute to their place of employment or education, saving money on expensive public or private transport.
