How This Helps
For many of us, one of our first childhood memories is learning how to ride a bike. But for children living in poverty, a bicycle can be much more than a source of excitement.
Your bicycle is a gift of mobility that helps children get to rural schools safely, helps parents get to work, and health care and development staff to do their work in the community.
In rural and urban communities, a bicycle can reduce the time spent travelling and doing chores and can make the difference between having access to medical care or not.
When you buy a bike through SOS Charity Gifts, you are supporting SOS Children’s Villages Family Strengthening Programs in: Central America, South America, Central Europe, Eastern Europe, Former Soviet Union, South Africa, Central Africa, Western Africa and in the Middle East. These representative gifts will provide SOS Children’s Villages with the financial means to empower someone in the world who truly needs our help. We will use your gift where it will have the greatest impact in making lasting positive change, and will utilize your donation where the need is greatest.
Each bicycle is purchased in the region where it is needed the most. SOS Children’s Villages ensures that its Family Strengthening Programs have the resources and/or training needed to ensure the provision of bikes. When more bicycles are given than a community needs, SOS Children’s Villages will ensure that your gift will provide similar assistance to people in different communities or will be used to meet additional needs in that same project.
