Project Summary:

This project will allow Africycle to work with youth and community members to refurbish bicycles and deliver them to 500 High Risk Youth throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Beneficiaries, identified by local Social Programs, will benefit from the freedom and mobility of a bicycle. Providing those less fortunate with a bicycle will nurture a positive psychological environment and encourage physical activity and healthy lifestyles in high risk situations.
