Our Vision 

Our vision is create employment opportunities for the local majority youth through conducting bicycle tours and other service based activities which will enable the engaged youth to upgrade their well-being and can thus uplift themselves, families and their communities out of chronic poverty.

Through the various programs run by the GoFree Uganda bicycle company we have experienced so many amazing success stories ranging from positive social behavioral change to economic empowerment of the local youth with whom we work with.

There is a huge need and demand for alternative employment or working opportunities for the local youth. At Go Free Uganda we nurture personal development skills that match the existing service demand on the local and global market.
