To provide bicycles to underprivileged people living in impoverished areas throughout the world. This will facilitate their ability to obtain essential services (such as clean water, medical care, education, firewood, or aid in bringing goods to market), thus enriching their lives and their communities.
Due to a lack of infrastructure, a villager has to carry their essential items of daily living to and from their homes by walking. Bicycles are a simple, sustainable, and inexpensive method to enhance their lives by expanding their range of access to essential services. Bicycles can provide an increase in independence and empower individuals, families, and communities. With a bicycle, an individual can travel at least 4 times as far in the same amount of time as someone on foot, with 5 times the carrying capacity. Healthcare workers would spend an entire day getting to someone's rural home. With a bicycle, they can now see four patients in the same day.
Do Something Now! is incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in the State of California. Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions in undeveloped countries. Your generous donation will fund our mission. Over 90% of all donations go to bicycles.
