Prodigal Bikes - Sending bikes to Africa

Prodigal Bikes is a charity that brings hope and changes lives in both Africa and the UK.

Why Prodigal Bikes? In the Bible, Luke Ch. 15 vs 11-32 is a story Jesus told about a father who welcomes his wayward (Prodigal) son back into his family, giving him a second chance in life.

In the UK we refurbish bikes donated to us, teaching engineering skills and giving work experience to those who need that second chance. These bikes are then shipped to Africa.

In Africa our bikes are used by patients to access healthcare, and by school children and teachers to get to schools. We also provide tools, spare parts and training to keep the bikes working.

Please browse our website to see what we do, who we help and how you can get involved.
