A little history
Bicycles without Borders was born in 2012 in Alt Empordà (Girona), as an association focused on solidarity and cooperation through the bike. After some local initiatives, in 2013 we changed our legal status and joined forces with the Utopia Foundation and the Girona Educational Platform Foundation. The union of the three entities is renamed the Utopia Foundation - Bicycles without Borders .
Since our creation we have been carrying out actions aimed at the social integration of the most disadvantaged people through cycling. At the national level, we have developed projects such as A bicycle for your neighbor and other actions aimed at equipping entities that work with people at risk of social exclusion with bicycles (Bicycles for integration project ). At an international level, we have delivered bicycles to countries such as Honduras, Burkina Faso or India, where we have collaborated closely for several years with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation and its project Bicis que se vida change .
In 2015 we started the implementation of the Bicycles for Education project in Senegal , which aims to deliver bicycles to high school students in this country, in order to facilitate access and daily commuting in class. This project is joined by the Bicycles for Development project , which supports rural communities in the area.
In 2019 we designed, together with Moma Bikes and Tannus Tires, our own bicycle for the educational project in Senegal: the baobike . As of 2020, all the bicycles delivered in Senegal for the Bicycles for Education project are of the baobike model.
