Hear from our Bike Shop Team

Special Thanks to our Partners!

Our two bike shops are managed by Charles Zulu, one of the oldest students who grew up in our family homes and is now an independent and self-sustaining young adult. We are so proud of how he has grown to become such a leader who takes pride in his work!

We partner with Bicycles for Humanity Colorado, a non-profit that collects and ships used bicycles to various community-based bike shops all over Africa. Each shipping container of bikes supplies around 400 bicycles for us to sell to the local community in Zambia. Our older students have really gained a sense of dignity and self-worth from working at the bike shop and are highly regarded in the community.

We also partner with various churches and organizations in the U.S. to host bike donation drives. The collected bicycles are then shipped directly to our bike shops in Zambia to change the community while making an impact in the lives of the children and mamas in our family.

If you'd like to partner with us to host a bike drive at your local church, organization, or business, please reach out to our Director of Sustainability, Tamika Simmons, at [email protected]. Thank you!

Wheels of Hope

Our Business-as-Mission initiatives help provide sustainable income to support our ministry in Zambia, while teaching our students valuable business skills.

Our first bike sales and repair shop, known locally as The Narrow Road Bike Shop, opened for business in October 2016 and has been very well-received in the community.

The second bike shop opened in Mpashya, Zambia, which is about an hour away from the first bike shop in Chongwe.

Mobilizes Local Community

Supports Our Ministry

Our older students learn marketable business and technical skills while working at the bike shop.

The bicycles have impacted lives in the community by reducing their travel time and improving their quality of life.

The sales generated from the bike shops help sustain the work of the ministry to care for orphans in our family homes.
