Good Deed # 99 of 150 – Bikes Without Borders
150 Good Deeds in 150 Days 2017.
Bikes Without Borders, Toronto, ON
AUGUST 23, 2017
At Bikes Without Borders, they use bikes and bike-related solutions to empower individuals in marginalized communities through mobility. We believe in the humble bicycle as a means to increase access to vital community services and networks that allow individuals to meet their basic needs and build better lives. Bike Host is a free cycling mentorship program for Convention refugees and permanent residents, created by CultureLink Settlement and Community Services in Toronto. The program matches newcomers with skilled mentors who ride regularly. Upon completion of the summer mentorship program, participants returned the training bicycle and were matched and offered a permanent donated bicycle refurbished and supplied by Bikes Without Borders. This good deed was nominated by Mike Gazzola of our Kitchener branch.
