In December of 2009, globalbike, inc., agreed to provide bicycles to Rwandan Partners to allow “Reconciliation Ambassadors” to travel from village to village to actively assist in the process of healing the societal and personal wounds caused by the genocide in Rwanda. These bicycles will make it possible for the Ambassadors to travel much more efficiently and quickly to perform this difficult and critical task.

In January 2010, globalbike provided its first batch of 50 bikes in Rwanda. The pictures below show the bikes, just after assembly, at the Center in Nyamata, ready for distribution.
