Educational Travel Programs
IBF's primary source of funding is from the sponsorship of Ibike people-to-people, cultural immersion programs. The aimed of the program is to expose people to an unfiltered understand of the diversity and complexity of the world. The programs are structured to be environmental-friendly (use simple living styles and bicycle or public transportation as the primary mode of travel), economically decentralized (design to direct the economic benefit of the program to local owned and produced goods and services) and intellectually enriching (include a activities expose participants to the mix of cultural, ethnicity, economic activities, social programs, religion, architecture, geography, geology, history, current affairs, etc.) The programs have no political position -- we do encourage inquiry -- our participants are smart enough to figure it out for themselves. Past programs have been in Tunisia, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Mali, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Ecuador, Guyana, Cuba, Korea, Canada and the United States.
The International Bicycle Fund is an independent, non-profit organization. Its primary purpose is to promote bicycle transportation. Most IBF projects and activities fall into one of four categories: planning and engineering, safety education, economic development assistance and promoting international understanding. IBF's objective is to create a sustainable, people-friendly environment by creating opportunities of the highest practicable quality for bicycle transportation. IBF is funded by private donation. Contributions are always welcome and are U.S. tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
