Prodigal Bikes - Sending bikes to Africa
Prodigal Bikes is a new Charity started in 2016, and is based in South Somerset. It has two separate, yet very much linked, goals.
The first is to supply, free of charge, refurbished Mountain Bikes and the spares and tools to keep them running, to people in rural Africa, to enhance their lives through improving access to education, trade and wider communities.
The second is working together with local people here on Community Payback programmes, and disengaged people, refurbishing the Mountain Bikes ready to be sent out to Africa. We give them a taste of working hands-on in an Engineering discipline, with a view to them pursuing education and careers in related professions. There is also the huge boost and sense of fulfilment in knowing their work is benefiting poor people in Africa.
