What if you wanted to learn but could not get to school? What if you wanted to work but could not get to your place of work? What if you wanted to connect and be discipled in your relationship with Christ but had no way to get to church? And what if even the most simple means of transportation cost more than 2 months of your income?
In the country of Cambodia, more than 25% of people make less than $1.20 per day. In many villages and communities, children, youth, and adults need bicycles in order to go to school, work, and church because the distance is too great for them to walk, and the distance from a gas station prevents them from using motorcycles. Bicycles range from $50-$85, depending on whether the bike is needed for a child, youth, or an adult. This is more than many people make in 1 month or even several months.
By supplying bicycles to local villages and communities in Cambodia, we will not only be providing transportation to school, work, and church, but children and youth on bicycles are also far less susceptible to exploitation. Our churches have plans to offer training to families on how to responsibly care for their bikes so they will last for many years. This ministry also opens the door for our pastors and church members to regularly visit families, share the hope that we have in Jesus Christ, and disciple them as they come to know and follow Christ.
Will you help provide a bicycle for a child, teenager, or adult in a local village in Cambodia?
