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.
