As the economies and societies of Africa continue to develop it is important that this growth occurs in a sustainable fashion which benefits not only the stakeholders involved, but the world as a whole. The First African Bicycle Information Organization (FABIO) is a Uganda based non-governmental organization that believes in utilizing non-motorized transport as a vital tool for sustainable development.
One of the contributing factors to poverty in underdeveloped areas of Africa is the lack of a viable form of transportation. From the farmer who cannot take large loads of crops to the market for sale, to the family who cannot transport their sick mother to a hospital; FABIO aspires to help build the capacity of these groups to improve their own lives. These issues are addressed through FABIO’s bicycle-related programs that aim to help make non-motorized forms of transportation more readily available to marginalized communities.
