With our upcoming Side by Side ride and newly established REACH Riders Club, we are very proud to introduce to you our newest team member: bike mechanic and tour guide, Rin Borith.
With 6 years’ experience in leading cycling tours across the country, as well as leadership trips for teenagers from Australian schools in Cambodia, we are incredibly lucky to have this skilled mentor establishing our REACH Riders Club.
Borith is an avid cyclist, he knows mountain bikes back to front and is enthusiastic about driving change and empowering youths within Cambodia.
Excited to share his passion and get our students involved in cycling, Borith has been very busy for the last month training our sponsored youths for the upcoming charity cycle in January.
The current situation is dire; financial pressures have been leading our youths into exploitative workplaces. Already, our Outreach team and Riders Club has both stopped and prevented a number of youths from engaging in unjust labour.
This in itself, makes Borith’s job more rewarding than he first thought possible… watch Borith’s video interview to gain insight into our special club; learn why you should consider sponsoring a youth and fundraising in support of our cause:
So far, we have 15 selected youths sponsored on the event, but we need your help… there are 15 places left, and a long list of teenagers applying to take part!
With our planned large-scale international fundraiser on hold, no volunteers or supporters able to visit, we need this fundraising event to continue operating through 2021.
WILL YOU SPONSOR A YOUTH AND FUNDRAISE TO SUPPORT MORE THAN 100 FAMILIES LIVING IN ABJECT POVERTY?
SPONSORSHIP COST: AUD$360 / USD$240 (Tax Deductible receipts available for U.S.A & Australian donors).
FUNDRAISING TARGET: AUD$1,000 + AUD$500 per additional member in your team OR USD$720 + USD$360 per additional member in your team
If you feel up to the challenge, you too can complete 200kms “Side by Side” with your youth in your home country.
Our students will be cycling, but that doesn’t mean you have to!
The choice is yours; you can swim, walk, run, or skate it… be creative! The only rule is that you start on the 1st of January and that you complete your challenge at the same time as our youths – 5.00pm (GMT + 7) on Sunday the 17th of January, 2021!
If partaking in the physical challenge is not for you, there’s no pressure, you can rally support for your sponsored youth and put all your energy into fundraising for our cause!
