For those who travel to meet people and gain a better understanding of the world, the International Bicycle Fund sponsors a series of educational cross-cultural bicycle programs in Africa. These programs are designed to explore the complexity and diversity of Africa, be culturally sensitive, environmentally friendly and to support local economic development. Participants have the opportunity to stay in untouristed rural villages and markets, learn about day-to-day life, meet artisans, health care personnel, educators and government officials, visit historical and cultural sites and national parks, and photograph the land and people.
