The Build Program is a unique way of mobilizing communities and supporting them through the power of bicycles. It aims to create more access to education, healthcare, and economic opportunity.
By booking a Revolución trip, you are directly contributing to the cost of the bike that gets delivered. Currently the Build Program operates in Nicaragua and as a part of our trips there, you get to see it in action.
Want to support but aren’t ready to book a trip? All of the funds from our store go directly to the Build Program.
We team up with local NGOs that are doing impactful and progressive work. By doing so, we allow them to build on the relationships they’ve already established with the people they serve. Candidates go through an application process to participate.
Once selected, participants are taken through a tailored workshop focused on the mechanical issues they are most likely to encounter so that they can independently keep themselves moving.
Participants receive a bicycle, enabling them to take advantage of the resources offered by the NGO by getting to/from. Those looking to take it a step further are given advanced training and the entrepreneurial support necessary to open their own small-scale bike shop business, thus mobilizing their community.
“Our vision for the future is to allow all special needs individuals in Granada, despite their condition or economic level, to have equal access to our Center.”
“SosteNica’s collaborative work integrates environmental and educational projects with financial services, creating a holistic and long-term approach to the alleviation of poverty in Nicaragua.”

“THERE IS NOTHING QUIXOTIC OR ROMANTIC IN WANTING TO CHANGE THE WORLD. IT IS POSSIBLE. IT IS THE AGE-OLD VOCATION OF ALL HUMANITY. I CAN‘T THINK OF A BETTER LIFE THAN ONE DEDICATED TO PASSION, TO DREAMS, TO THE STUBBORNNESS THAT DEFIES CHAOS AND DISILLUSIONMENT.”
