Every MiiR bicycle sold empowers one person with sustainable transportation. Recognizing that charitable gifts can cripple local businesses and weaken developing markets by creating a damaging aid-based economy, we partner with organizations that empower people to grow their local economies. Through study and work to own contracts recipients are not simply handed a bicycle, they make a commitment that will magnify the impact. We've learned that ownership leads to sustainable change.
International + Domestic
The need for simple, sustainable transportation is not confined to any one area of the world. It is a global need requiring a global response, which is why we have blended our giving model to help provide mobility domestically as well as internationally.
