The association #BIKEYGEES e.V. offers bike training for (refugee) women and girls. The lessons not only include practical cycling lessons, but also theoretical classes about German traffic rules and basic bike repair workshops.
The initiative has been kicked off in September 2015 as a grassroot project in order to empower female refugees. Since then, we have grown to an official NGO fostering the education and integration of women.
We help to dissolve barriers between people: Origin, nationality, religion and status don’t mean anything to us. Every women should be able to ride a bike.
We are funded mainly by donations and can maintain our efforts only by the support of the large number of volunteers to whom we wholeheartedly thank for their help.
