Bicycles to Africa

I want to present you another very interesting project.

It is coming from Denmark and has the following name: Baisikelis.

Baisikelis philosophical starting point is social innovation: to make a difference for people and to give them the possibility of developing professionally and socially. It is based on the belief that the best foreign aid is based on a regular commercial market. A purely subsidized development project will make the African partners completely dependent of donations from other countries.

A solid support in the education and start-up phase, on the other hand, is necessary for enabling the African cooperation partners, the upcoming bicycle mechanics and future entrepreneurs to support themselves.

Check their webpage and inspire yourself!
