World Bicycle Relief
World Bicycle Relief’s mission is to provide access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles.
Compared to walking, bicycles represent an enormous leap in productivity and access to healthcare, education and economic development opportunities. The simple, sustainable nature of bicycles empowers individuals, their families and their communities.
To accomplish our mission, we:
*Work with suppliers to improve bicycle design while ensuring all changes are culturally appropriate
*Enhance distribution with local sourcing, manufacturing and assembly as much as possible
*Partner with existing NGO, government and community based organizations
*Train mechanics in maintenance and repair while strengthening the existing supply of spare parts
*Measure and evaluate the impact of bicycles; communicate the results to improve programs and increase awareness
Breakthrough Partners operates in strategic regions of Africa, Asia and Latin America to identify and build indigenous leaders who will lead an “Inside-Out” change process to pursue transformational, sustainable solutions to profound ruin, devastation and brokenness.
Prosthetics Outreach Foundation
POF seeks to ensure that children and adults with limb loss or limb deformities in developing countries have access to high-quality orthopedic and physical rehabilitation services, so that they can enjoy lifelong mobility. To this end, we work to strengthen the local capacity of developing countries to provide prosthetic care, orthopedic surgeries and the treatment of children with clubfoot through hands-on teaching and training. This includes assisting developing countries with the in-country fabrication of prosthetic and orthotic components (artificial feet, knee joints, shoe braces, etc.) to break dependence on costly component imports
For over 20 years, POF has helped more than 18,000 children and adults to walk. Currently, POF has programs in Vietnam, Bangladesh, Sierra Leone, and Haiti.
