What do bicycles have to do with fighting global poverty? A lot, actually. CARE works in some of the world's poorest communities. Many are remote. More often than not, getting to them requires miles of walking or, if you're lucky, hitching a ride. A CARE community volunteer coaching farmers on improved planting techniques or helping organize meetings on pre-natal nutrition can see a lot more people, and get a lot more work done, if she or he isn't spending half the day walking or waiting for a ride. A reliable bike can help one person triple or quadruple daily productivity.
The gifts in this catalog are virtual gifts representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
