Corporate Affairs at Bicycles for Humanity
Bicycles for Humanity Western Australia (B4H) is part of an exciting global volunteer-run, non-profit organisation that uses donated bikes to help alleviate poverty through sustainable transport.
Every year around 1.5 million bikes are sold across Australia – around half of those will end up unused or abandoned. B4H know this and repair bicycles to be sent to some of the world’s poorest regions.
B4H’s bicycle recycling scheme contributes to United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, promoting a future in which cities can provide opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more. SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, is also met through the act of repurposing old materials. Through their Bicycle Empowerment Centres, B4H is also working towards SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth, by building skills and creating small businesses in developing countries.
