Ride for the future, Bike for peace.

Swiss mountains connected with the Thousand Hills of Rwanda

Let's build a promising future for Rwanda's youth

The project develops a programme for young people from the age of 16 onwards which will enable them to acquire, alongside the know-how of bicycle manufacture, maintenance and repair, skills in a variety of services such as bicycle tourism, marketing, sales, logistics, accounting and IT (office automation, website, promotion on social networks). Our action consists in providing the necessary means (infrastructure and knowledge) to the youth trained in the framework of the project so that they become autonomous.


Our objectives

Mixed training workshop

Repair all types of bicycles, design and manufacture custom bamboo bicycles through the fields of mechanics, carpentry and welding.

Training in the administrative field

Participatory mechanical workshops

Bicycles are a fast (compared to the kilometres walked by many Africans), environmentally friendly, healthy, social and fashionable means of transport. To counter the difficulties encountered in the villages, both for transporting goods and crops, and for children to get to school.

Setting up a green project

Promotion of a 100% Made In Rwanda product (bamboo bicycles) that respects fundamental principles : respect and awareness of the environment, training for young people and future prospects, innovation and employment.

Promotion of soft mobility

The birth of the project

The idea for the Ride for the Future project was born while cycling solo across Africa. On her way, Joëlle Huguenin encountered several mechanical problems and realised the need to be able to offer quality services around the bicycle and to obtain the spare parts to change them. What touched her most while constantly sleeping in the homes of local people were the young people who were discouraged by not being able to follow a training course and quickly realised that they would have no future prospects.
