User research for bicycle design

15 December 2013


Designing a bicycle for students in Africa, requires a lot of user research. Eline Meesters, student of Delft University of Technology, is now in Uganda to design a bicycle frame that meets the needs of students and can be produced locally in the workshops of CooP-Africa. Next year we want to start the first production. CooP-Africa is looking for donors who want to contribute to the development of this project. For more information on this initiative, go to African Bicycle Designbicycle frame design.

Boat for Bike4Care

08 November 2013


Improving access to health care is the aim of our programme Bike4Care. This involves distributing bicycles to community health workers. But if they are on an island and the only health centre is on the mainland... What do you do? We provide a boat. It improves access to health care and generates income for the volunteer community health care workers. For more information on this project, go to Bike4Care Northern Uganda.

Mechanic training in Uganda

07 November 2013


Bicycle repair and fitting training in Nakapiripirit, Uganda. Youths are being trained to assemble and repair bicycles in a very rural and isolated region. A bicycle really makes a difference in this area but it is essential the bicycles keep on running. So that's where they come in. For more information on this project, go to Bike4Work Northern Uganda.
