globalbike: Two wheels making a world of difference

For several years now, I have been a member of the globalbike Spartanburg chapter team. As pedaling billboards, we represent globalbike, a nonprofit founded and based in Spartanburg, South Carolina that provides bikes to community careworkers, and women and girls organizations in Tanzania, Africa.

July 4, 2015, our chapter team is sponsoring a metric century in part to raise money for the upcoming trip to Africa by globalbike representatives.

Please consider donating and supporting the cause: Two wheels making a world of difference.

    My final act as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1987 was to give a gift of a bike. I had the pleasure of giving that gift today from afar. Thank you for letting me know about this way of making a difference in our world.

    Thank you!! I lived in Tanzania for a year. I fell in love. They could do very well with small loans and small cooperatives, if the capitalists would just leave them alone! However, China, the U.S., et al are trying to foist large machinery, GMO seeds, fertilizers, etc. on the farmers (mainly women) when they know very well how to farm their land, and have been doing so for many years. The capitalists are leading them to starvation.
