Cycle Recycle: Economic Development in Sierra Leone (Sierra Leone, USA, 9 min)

Directed by Greg Sucharew

The influx of cheap transportation; i.e., bicycles, into impoverished communities not only provides people the ability to travel greater distances with larger loads, but also helps to promote commerce. Cycle Recycle: Economic Development in Sierra Leone documents this process by following the operations of Pedals for Progress, the world’s largest recycler of used bicycles, as the non-profit develops its relationship with The Center for Research, Training, and Program Development by delivering of a thousand bikes to the community in which CRTPD operates, Kenema.
