The B4H WA chapter was established in 2011 to address the fundamental barriers to development and healthcare in rural Africa. To date, we have delivered 10 containers filled with about 3000 bikes to small communities in Namibia and South Africa.
By partnering with NGOs like Bicycling Empowerment Network Namibia (BENN) our containers of bikes, spare parts and tools become the basis of new community run bike shops. This way our projects not only provide life changing transport but also community self-empowerment projects.
B4H WA also donates bikes to schools in remote aboriginal communities across Western Australia. These bikes are used by schools in their broader health and retention programs. We also provide bikes to other charities helping refugees start new lives here in Perth, WA.
Watch Richard Sidey and Hap Cameron’s wonderful doco about Bicycles For Humanity, Namibia and Hap’s ten year mission to live and work in every continent before turning 30. This film tells the story of what we do with a huge heart and shows an intimate view of Africa where many of our projects are based.
