Bikes Not Bombs

http://bikesnotbombs.org/about

Bikes Not Bombs uses the bicycle as a vehicle for social change. They reclaim thousands of bicycles each year and ship most of  them overseas to economic development projects through their international programs in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Bikes that don’t get shipped often land in their youth programs where teens learn bicycle safety and mechanics skills in the process of earning bikes to keep for themselves. Their retail bike shop also reconditions and sells some of the donated bikes that they receive, employing many graduates of their programs. The Shop’s profit from the bicycle sales, parts sales and repairs goes towards funding their youth and international work.
