    Project

    Freedom Bike Rentals brings needed school supplies and toys to 13 schools in remote villages that they visit along their guided and self-guided tours. These rural schools serve over 1,000 children from the ages of 5 through 12. Please be aware that if you wish to deliver the supplies yourself, may need to carry these in your own saddlebags on your own motorcycle.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of August 7, 2020

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
