Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Bicycling can be a healthy habit, but Abt Associates is supporting an organization bringing a new level of meaning to that idea in Uganda.
Bikes Not Bombs uses bikes as a vehicle for social change. Each year the non-profit organization, headquartered near Boston, collects roughly 6,000 used bicycles and many used parts from around greater Boston and New England. They ship most of these bikes and parts overseas to economic development projects through its international programs in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Known for its rigorous approach to solving complex challenges, Abt Associates is regularly ranked as one of the top 20 global research firms and one of the top 40 international development innovators. The company has multiple offices in the U.S. and program offices in more than 40 countries.
