So They Can operates a bike shop located in Mamire in the Babati district of Tanzania next door to the Mamire Teachers’ Training College. Villages in the ward are very isolated and second hand bikes provide and affordable, environmentally friendly mode of transport for children and teachers to get to school and parents to collect water and carry their crops to market.
A global organisation, Bikes for Humanity, donated 400 top quality second hand bikes to begin this business.
Our bike shop is a converted shipping container that serves as a bike repair facility and shop for the local community, generating employment and offering for the first time this affordable form of transport.
All profits from the shop go to support our developmental projects.
