globalbike was created with this statement in 2006, as six friends met in a coffee shop with $850.00 and the commitment to do something meaningful and sustainable in the developing world.
globalbike is a not-for-profit organization that uses the transformative power of bicycles to connect women and girls in rural Tanzania with the life-saving resources they need to prosper sustainably. Since 2006, globalbike has been transforming lives and communities with the power of bikes.
In 2013, globalbike began to focus on connecting women and girls around Mt. Kilimanjaro to necessary resources for daily living, namely healthcare, education, and economic opportunity. Our research indicates that connecting women to these vital resources increases opportunities for higher education, improves access to healthcare for families, and ultimately increases the chance for a community to rise out of poverty.
