The Social Bike / Service (Help a community)

The Social Bike
The Social Bike

In 2050, Africa will be the first demographic leader, and it urges to solve real world problems. Today, 25% of African children are not in schools therefore, NGOs donates one bicycle per child. With ‘The Social Bike’, more than one child can go to school, and a whole community can enjoy one product. It allows transport of new and bigger goods, such as animals. Its basic assembly enables local production (one metal sheet/bending/welding), which also allows a low cost to support local economy. Thus, this product becomes an aid in rural connections through education and economic development.
