Bikes for the Philippines

The mission of the Bikes for the Philippines program is to provide bikes to students at risk of dropping out. The success of the program is measured in more than the students who stay and school and realize their dream of graduation. Bikes for the Philippines builds community, youth leadership and includes a bike focused curriculum where students learn about bike safety, mechanics and the importance of helping others.
