SIDE BY SIDE RIDE

THE CURRENT SITUATION

To replace our planned inaugural charity bike ride, our team has developed a creative fundraising event which involves strengthening the REACH community by providing our impoverished youths with a life-changing experience…one which they will cherish for a lifetime.

The hardships our youths are currently facing are unimaginable... to gain insight into the how life-changing our event will be for them, please watch the following video:


The Cambodian Government has announced that public schools will not be likely to re-open this academic year and students are expected to continue their studies through e-learning. This requires reliable Internet and access to technology, two luxuries that our children and youths are without. To combat this, we are working with the local government school to facilitate small study groups and are providing our teenagers with the resources and support needed to continue their formal education.


We want our children and their families to know we are not giving up on them.
We want to give them hope, so they resist the temptation of dropping out of school, crossing the border looking for work that does not exist, or become victims of human trafficking. These scenarios are very real and both often lead to children being lost in another country and never returning to their home, causing untold trauma to siblings and parents, a pain that never lessens.


Our immediate goal is to ensure that families can survive this pandemic with our emergency medical and food supplies, and that when the time comes for schools to re-open, every student at REACH will be in a position to return and continue their education.


For us to achieve this, we need your help...

Would you ride side by side through this storm with our students?
