E-BIKES for Africa

Since 2017 EURIST-Ebikes have been operating in Uganda. They have traveled over 20.000km with the energy of the African sun – and made daily life easier for many people. Complementing ordinary bicycles, EURIST – in close cooperation with FABIO (First African Bicycle Information Organisation – develops and provides solar-powered Ebikes as innovative mobility option for a livable future.

MakING a Donation

EURIST’s Team is supporting sustainable transport in various ways. We initiate bottom-up bicycle projects to support people in the rural areas of Africa. With these bicycles people get the chance to integrate in the society, they improve their access to education and healthcare and they also get the chance to boost their economic wellbeing.

Getting Involved


About us

As a non-profit organisation we want to help cities, governments  and communities to develop good transport governance and reform local and national transport systems, reducing transport needs, shifting to more sustainable modes and improving the systems efficiency. We want to raise awareness and transfer knowledge to decision makers in order to create a basis for a paradigm change in mobility policy towards sustainable mobility for all!

Join us as a member / Sponsor

The funding of EURIST is twofold. On one hand we offer consultancy services, project work and lectures, which we are paid for. On the other hand however, we need your support to be able to maintain the economic stability and independency that enables us to stick to our principles.
That´s why it is your help that makes the difference between a market-orientated consultancy firm and a non-profit organisation like EURIST. For informations click below!
