At inGamba we believe in the power of bicycles to change the lives of individuals.
As an organization we feel a strong responsibility to do what we can to leave the world a little better than we found it. Through World Bicycle relief we have started the program One Guest: One Bike. For each guest that travels with us this year we will donate ($134) the cost of a WBR bicycle in their honor.
Donating a bicycle is more than a gift; it's a long-term investment in sustainable practices and economic opportunity in rural Africa. Our goal is to inspire our guests to do the same and match our contribution with the goal of reaching 100 bicycles by years end.
In areas with poor roads and no sustainable transportation, people must often walk prohibitively long distances to reach clean water, schools, health clinics, and jobs. At World Bicycle Relief provides bicycles so they can travel farther and quicker, allowing health care workers to visit more patients, students to stay in class, and employees to continue working. Compared to walking, the wheel boosts productivity and access to health care, education, and economic opportunities.
World Bicycle Relief addresses the lack of affordable, reliable transportation in rural Africa by designing, sourcing and manufacturing high-quality bicycles to withstand African terrain and load requirements while meeting the needs of students, healthcare workers, farmers and entrepreneurs. They strengthen local economies and promote long-term sustainability by locally assembling bicycles, training mechanics and improving the spare parts supply chain. It's creating a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, healthcare and economic opportunity.
World Bicycle Relief is currently working to provide 50,000 bicycles to students (70% girls), teachers and educational workers in rural Zambia and Zimbabwe. For $134 we can provide a World Bicycle Relief bicycle to a student in need. inGamba will contribute a minimum of 50 bicycles this year. It's our hope that with your help we will make that number 100 and truly make a difference.
Thanks for your support!
