Started in 2012 by a group of passionate cyclists, Wheels for HOPE is an initiative that brings bicycles to disadvantaged and impoverished rural communities in Cambodia. Working in close collaboration with HOPE Worldwide Cambodia & other charity groups, WFH has carried out 8 campaigns, providing over 2800 bicycles to rural communities in Cambodia and the Phillippines. Combining philanthropy with a cycling adventure, the group incorporates each expedition with some fun rides for themselves through the scenic locales of Cambodia. Wheels for HOPE plans to extend this initiative to more countries around the region.
Wheels for HOPE, along with Hope Worldwide Cambodia and other charity groups has established a time-tested partnership with the local schools and villages, from the weekly mobile health clinics to building homes & sanitation programs.
The Wheels for HOPE team goes on every trip to tag all the bicycles with your names. As a tangible link between you and recipient, photographs of recipients and the bicycles are posted on our Facebook page.
NOT FOR PROFIT
Wheels for HOPE is not profit driven. Our members pay for our own trips to Cambodia every December. We encourage everyone to join us. Follow us on Facebook for the latest news.
HOW IT WORKS
Every $80 sponsored via Wheels for HOPE goes directly to our local charity partners like HOPE Worldwide Cambodia. The pre-owned Japanese bikes will be purchased at a bulk discount from local suppliers & transport is arranged. Meanwhile, they work with the provincial schools & villages leaders to identify the recipients from the neediest families and school children. Some bikes go to HIV patients & TB patients who need bicycles for transport to get regular medical care.
2800 BIKES & COUNTING
