About Village Bike Project: Village Bicycle Project came about in response to a critical lack of basic reliable, affordable transport for millions of Africans. When the only other choice is walking, bicycles are a tool of development,improving access to farms,market, jobs, schools, and health care.
VBP provides donated used bikes, new tools and repair training, building the capacity of bicycles to sustainably become the transport mode of choice for thousands of Africans, where over 99% of the population cannot afford cars.
The project started in Ghana in 1999, when David Peckham (Director)) went there to study ways to make bicycles more accessible. He found several ways to make a real difference and the Village Bicycle Project was born.

About Pedals to People: Our mission is to use the bicycle as a tool to empower people and build healthier communities. We believe that the bicycle is an approachable, healthy and sustainable option for transportation, and most importantly, it provides a purely enjoyable activity that can strengthen bonds between people. Pedals 2 People also works to connect with other organizations in order to further extend its ability to recycle, reuse and rehabilitate bicycles back into local communities as well as communities abroad.
