BENEFITING: Dwankhozi Hope

EVENT DATE: Aug 12, 2016

THE STORY:

Welcome to our fundraising page for our third year of bike riding in the RSVP (Ride from Seattle to Vancouver and Party) to support Dwankhozi Hope!

This has become an annual event for friends and supporters of Dwankhozi Hope, who are crazy enough to ride a bike from Seattle, WA to Vancouver, BC. This August, a group of bike riding friends is once again coming together to travel 188 miles, spanning two countries, over the course of two days...with the goal of raising $15,000 for Dwankhozi Hope, all of which goes to empower a rural community in Zambia.

Dwankhozi Hope is a nonprofit organization based in Seattle, WA that strives to empower the children & families of Zambia through partnership in education & community development, recognizing our interconnectedness as we seek mutual transformation. At the center of this partnership is Dwankhozi Community School, where over 600 students in grades 1-9 come each day to learn and further their education. And since 2015, Dwankhozi Community School also includes an additional 100+ students in grades 10-12!

In rural Zambia the need for education is great, but the public resources to support schools are not. The school began over 10 years ago thanks to the Dwankhozi community's passionate adults who came together to form a PTA and supply volunteer teachers so their children could have a better chance at an education and a future. Since then, we have expanded our involvement and support to launch adult classes, improve economic development opportunities, and address health needs. We continue to look to the community for direction on what needs are greatest how we go about meeting them together. Examples of how your contribution is used through Dwankhozi Hope:

-$50: supplies school uniforms to 5 children - an empowering, inclusive symbol that encourages children's committment to their school.

-$125: supports 10 women's enrollment in adult literacy classes.

-$250: buys a full set of textbooks for 60 students in the Secondary School

-$400: sponsors a teacher's certification - the most important part of Dwankhozi Community School!

Until the ride in August, each team member is spreading the word about Dwankhozi Hope's involvement and partnership in Zambia, and working hard to meet our fundraising goal. Will you help us reach it?

And last, but definitely not least...our group of amazing 2016 riders!
