Throughout 2011, the customers of Yuba Bicycles were invited to donate money to send several Yuba Mundo longtail cargo bikes to Level Ground’s HOPE Project in Tanzania. Yuba matched the donations on a dollar per dollar basis throughout the year. In the end, six bikes were donated to the Ileje, Tanzania, coffee growers collective.
The donated bicycles arrived at the coffee growers collective on December 22 and have already made life easier for the farmers.
The HOPE Project works with coffee farming collectives to leverage the power of direct fair trade to improve lives. In Ileje, they have helped farmers collectively purchase coffee cleaning and processing equipment, which has enabled farmers to earn market rates for their organic coffees.
