Find our more about some of our projects here –
The Melbourne Bicycles For Humanity Chapter was established in 2008 – the first in Australia.
As a grass-roots volunteer run organisation we run on donations. We always need more hands, your bike will make a huge difference and a financial donation will allow us to get the bikes to those who need them most.
We’re completely volunteer run – all of your donation will go toward the projects – no administration fees at all.
If you’re interested in lending a hand please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donating Your Bike
Please note that we can only accept working or easily fixable bikes as donations. In the developing world the most useful are adult sized sturdy hybrids or mountain bikes. We can now also accept adult sized BMX bikes or children’s bikes 24″ or larger. Generally we can’t accept small children’s bikes as we are routinely over run with them however clear we make it that they can’t usually be used. Sorry – as a volunteer run organisation we need to be as efficient as possible with the time we are able to give to the project.
If you have an adult sized bike in reasonable condition that is unsuitable for the developing world we can still use it to benefit the project by repurposing it for use here through partnerships with other bike based charities – it will certainly be put to good use and find a new life.
Parkvue Storage lend us vital space out in Dingley where we collect prep and pack all the bikes before they head to the developing world. They are the best self storage facility in Melbourne and we could not do the work we do without them.
