How we work
PROVIDING BICYCLES TO SCHOOLS
In areas in which most people rely on walking, a bicycle makes a significant difference.
A bicycle can break through the vicious circle of poverty. Imagine the tap is not just a few steps away, instead you have to walk several kilometres to the well. High-quality secondhand import bicycles increase children's mobility to their education. Anyone with a bicycle can cover considerably greater distances - which leaves more time for learning.
RIDE TO SCHOOL - GET THROUGH LIFE
We focus on school-based cycling as a means of transportation for students to school as we believe that “one bicycle one leaner” is a tool that can be used in the rural areas to achieve academic, health, and social success.
The program is designed to provide middle schools with everything they need to get their 7-12 grade students cycling to schools. Each learner will receive a bicycle, helmets, training maintenance and will learn how to ride safely.
VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND INCOME
SWEETbike imports not only bicycles but also knowledge.
Together with the local authorities, rsw Development constructs bicycle workshops, runs training courses and trains mechanics. Jobs and earning opportunities are created in the bicycle assembly, repairs and in distribution.
