Client: A&K Philanthropy, Wheels of Change
Project: The aim of this project was to benefit impoverished rural communities in Jordan through the donation of used bicycles, the building of cycle shops and support for tour guide and bike business training. A&K Philanthropy and Wheels of Change partnered with BARAKA to ship a large container of mountain bikes, spare parts, and tools to Jordan. Baraka worked closely with the beneficiary communities, investing in setting up the shops, conducting training, overseeing facilities, and handling the logistics of ground transport into and around Jordan. A total of 672 bicycles were donated and the bicycles have been distributed among various local initiatives from Um Qais in the north and near Petra in the south and many in between.
