You can buy cheap dynamo sets on Ebay, but shipping can double the price. Otherwise, local hypermarkets that carry bicycles may have cheap dynamo sets. A problem with the battery sets is that once the batteries run out, a homeless person might not buy fresh ones. I think that providing homeless with bicycles is a very good idea. In my observations in Japan, the community would provide the homeless with a decent winter jacket, a sleeping bag and a bicycle with lights, fenders and a basket.
