Cycle Cambodia

Cycle Cambodia is a charity that cycles around Cambodia helping the people in little villages with the challenges they are facing. My brother, Devin is traveling with Cycle Cambodia in about one month. Each rider raises awareness and funds to provide for the needs of each village they visit. To donate go to www.justgiving.com/devin

£10 ($20) will provide 2 children with FOOD for ONE MONTH

£50 ($100) will provide a 6 MONTH TRAINING COURSE in a marketable skill for a young person to provide for themselves

£100 ($200) will provide a child's SCHOOLING FOR A YEAR.

My brother.

This is a little bit he sent to me about his work:

I am bike riding 277 miles throughout Cambodia in order to raise money for International Childcare Trust, a UK development organization that has been working with children living in poverty for the past 24 years. They are highly recognized in the UK and by other organizations such as the annual charity fundraiser Comic Relief.

I became involved with ICT when I was completing my MA in Children’s Rights at the Institute of Education, University of London. Previous to this I worked with children in development issues in China, Romania, Turkey, the UK and Kenya. I was attracted to raising funds for ICT because of their ideals and practices of working directly with children in development projects.

The money raised goes towards projects that help women and children in issues of relieving poverty and sickness and advancing the education of children and young persons who are in need, hardship or distress.

Some of the projects include creating opportunities for education and a safe haven off of the streets for street children in Cambodia. A project in Silvarpatti, India built a hospital and teaches women and children preventative health. In Kenya, ICT has helped build a children’s center in Liyavo that now has a village general shop, nurse, five acres of vegetable and fruit and vocational workshops that teach organic cultivation. This community development project helps over 1,000 children who attend the school and also more children in other centers in Kenya. Makandura, Sri Lanka is another site of an ICT project that relieves child poverty through education. ICT has set up a Vocation Training Centre there that helps children from 14 – 18 gain marketable skills that are in demand in the area. ICT is also has projects that help children who have been affected by the tsunami.
