Where We Work

At Re-Cycle we donate the contents of each shipping container to our partners in Africa. Our partners receive the shipments and quickly distribute them across their areas.

They manage existing bicycle repair shops and run training courses for local mechanics so that they can maintain these bicycles once they are sold to community members.

All Re-Cycle’s partners are non-profit NGOs and any surplus funds generated from the sale of bicycles go towards community-based projects.

In Sierra Leone, VBP’s work focuses on bicycles and programs in rural areas as the poverty rate is very high and the opportunity to access bicycles can have a huge positive impact in these rural communities.

Re-Cycle is keen to support programmes that work with the existing bicycle economies in each recipient country. We encourage partners not to sell the bicycles and spares parts we ship them to protect existing bicycle vendors and traders, and encourage a market growth in the bicycling sector. From experience, Re-Cycle believes that by valuing the bicycles we send, we increase the long-term popularity, sustainability and desirability of bicycle ownership in Africa.
