Our Bicycle Workshop

Building a Small Business for Income

We set up the Bicycle Workshop as a Community Cooperative Committee with five members who help run the business.

  • Have a Group Savings Account opened at Bank Windhoek with three signatories.

  • Two mechanics manage the day-to-day activities in the shop, keeping proper records of the bicycles and undertaking bike repairs and maintenance.

  • The workshop offers weekly bicycle lessons to children in Education programs, especially encouraging young girls to ride. A total of 15 boys and 23 girls benefited this year.

  • Two bicycles were donated to two learners who walk long distances to school.

We need:

  • Donations of bicycles, used and new.

  • Bicycle spare parts, including tires, rims, chains, pumps, etc.
