World Bicycle Relief NFP

Company Information

World Bicycle Relief (WBR) mobilizes people through the Power of Bicycles. We envision a world where distance is no longer a barrier to education, health services, and economic opportunity. Our robust Buffalo Bicycles are a cost-effective and reliable means of overcoming the challenges posed by long distances in developing countries.

We are a mission-driven, global not-for-profit that manages a highly-refined bicycle supply chain from design through final distribution. We also work collaboratively with field partners to design, test, and implement large-scale bicycle mobility programs. Funding for these activities comes from individuals, foundations, corporations, and bilateral and multilateral donors and clients.

WBR has an innovative corporate structure with a wholly-owned for-profit subsidiary social enterprise that sells our Buffalo Bicycles to individuals, non-profits, private sector entities, and bilateral and multilateral institutions. This structure enables us to diversify our funding and magnify the impact of donations; reduces per unit costs through economies of scale; places the end-user at the heart of our efforts; and, because we operate within the rigors of the market, works in harmony with local economies.

WBR is a registered not-for profit in the USA (501c3), Canada, UK, Germany, Switzerland and Australia. We have supported programs in 20 developing countries, and have country offices, staff, and assembly facilities in Kenya, Malawi, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. www.worldbicyclerelief.org
