About Us: Changing Lives
Bicycle Riders International Cooperative Society (BRICS) is a community-based NGO that promotes cycling sports and related activities as vehicles for change in Yola, Nigeria. BRICS has made remarkable progress in a relatively short time. BRICS has trained over 20 kids to unicycle, established pen-pal writing correspondences with unicycling kids in the USA, fabricated unicycles locally (pictured, left) and started an advertising venture featuring Yola’s unicycling kids.
Our Vision: Giving Hope
In recognition of the invaluable asset youth are to the future prosperity, peace and sustainability of our community, BRICS is committed to cycling initiatives that honor and nurture the talents and abilities of Yola youth.
Our Mission: Shaping the Future
In addition to having fun learning how to unicycle, our kids learn discipline, cooperation, leadership, responsibility and team spirit in a safe and nurturing space.
Empowering Youth: Advertise With Us
Unicycling is a new sport in Adamawa State and its eye-catching performances present an opportunity to generate revenue through various advertising platforms. BRICS is looking for advertisers to sponsor a contingent of 15 unicyclists in the
Nigerian Independence Day Parade (Oct. 1, 2014).
