THE BICYCLE PROJECT - Let your old bicycle help a poor village kid get to school
A brief about The Bicycle Project
Known by the very simple and easy to recall name of The Bicycle Project, this charity initiative took birth just outside Mumbai city, the financial metropolitan capital of India. The brainchild of three individuals: businessman Hemant Chhabra, his ex-teacher wife Sangeeta and their journalist friend Simona Terron; the project addresses rural neglect with the approach of recycling urban waste.
We have started off with refurbishing bicycles that are unused and lie rusting in the city and giving them to school-going tribal children who need to traverse long distances to get to school from their remote villages.
The project eventually aims at expanding to old computers, disused books and other items in the future.
