What We Do — November 5, 2013

What We Do

1. In Ireland.
  • Homework Clubs: Funds from Cycle-It supports NCPs homework club, service that assists children on a one-on-one basis who find homework through English language particularly challenging.

  • Youth Vocational Training Centre: In partnership with Community Employment to train young people in bike repair and maintenance.

  • Students Bike Rentals: Highly subsidised for college students in Ireland.

  • “Learn to Ride-Earn a Bike” Programme: A child is a child irrespective of its family’s income or status. This programme is for young children, age 3-12, in selected direct provision centres. They learn to ride, then earn a bike, when they get too old for the bike, they donate it back to Cycle-It.

  • The bikes on arrival in BC they are sold to community members at an ‘approved and affordable’ price. The bikes are used to empower beneficiaries through affordable and sustainable means of transportation by children to school and general transport in rural areas.
  • It provides access to good quality bikes and bike parts for the local community and training for young people through local bike mechanic youth programme which provides knowledge to maintain the bikes and helps keep people riding their bikes longer.

Bikes are Eco-Friendly and are Low MaintenanceCompared to walking, children can bike to school, health workers can cycle to care for patients and farmers and business owners can travel to market places.
Our bicycles can also be adapted to carry passengers and large goods enabling farmers to travel further to reach more customers thereby increasing their income.
