Ghana Bike Project
Since 2009 Franklinton Cycleworks has been partnering with a NGO from Ghana to pass along used mountain bikes overseas to the villages surrounding the city of Accra Ghana.
Many Ghanaian children are dependent upon bicycles to travel several miles from their rural homes to their schools in the town centers. A bicycle can mean the difference of a two hour walk and a twenty minute bike ride.
Currently, FCW is raising funds to purchase essential bicycle tools, and mechanic resource books to help create a hub for bicycle repair in Accra. We are also looking for partners who may have access to many used bicycles to send overseas.
