Last fall, Yuba Bicycles partnered with Level Ground Trading to donate six Yuba Mundos to the HOPE Project in Tanzania. The HOPE Project works with coffee farming collectives to leverage the power of direct fair trade to improve lives. In Tanzania they have helped farmers collectively purchase coffee cleaning and processing equipment, which has enabled farmers to earn market rates for their organic coffees.
The bikes arrived in Ileje on December 22, and the members of the coffee co-op started using them right away.
Before sending the bikes to Africa, Level Ground tested a Yuba Mundo under load at their facility in Canada and made this short video:
If you want to support the coffee collective, you can purchase their coffee directly from Level Ground.
