Can I choose where the bicycles that I raise money for are distributed?

Bicycle distributions through our Bicycles for Economic Empowerment Program (BEEP) are guided by local supervisory committees comprising school administrators, teachers, parents, and community leaders. This board makes the final decision as to who the bike recipients are based on distance traveled to school, family income, and health. In the end, we supply the bicycles and mechanics training, and each local community determines where the need is the greatest. World Bicycle Relief does not directly choose bicycle recipients through this program, so you cannot choose where bicycles are distributed using the funds you raise.

    How does WBF select distribution locations? If someone worked in a region in Africa where there are no current or past distribution locations, how could one go about setting up a location there? Is that even possible?
