What is Cycling out Child Poverty in Vietnam?

This year we are embarking on a cycling multi-continent awareness and fund raiser. COV is  encouraging cyclists and/or cycling teams around the globe and cyclists in Vietnam to “Cycle Out Child Poverty in Vietnam.” This event is an awareness and fund raising campaign to bring the forefront the complex issues of poverty and its long-term impact on children in Vietnam.  Children of Vietnam has set a goal of raising $140,000 on this 2019 Ride. That will change SO MANY LIVES of children that are living and struggling with the effects of poverty on a daily basis.

Who participates in the Event?

YOU! This event is very participatory and we are using THIS platform to encourage friends, families and colleagues to either join as cyclists or sponsor our cyclists and ultimately assist some very vulnerable children have a brighter future.  We have a team riding for 3 Days for 100 kilometers through Vietnam to raise awareness and tour the areas where we have had the most impact on children in need. 

YOU can also start your own TEAM of riders here stateside to raise money and awareness for the children living in poverty in Vietnam.  All you have to sign up under the TEAM portion on this website.

Why support Children of Vietnam?

Some 30 million people in Vietnam were lifted out of poverty in the past two decades, but new and lingering issues pose challenges for Vietnam. Thousands of Vietnamese children living in poverty, many facing hunger, inadequate healthcare, homelessness or substandard housing, lack of access to education and possible trafficking. These children have little hope for a successful future. Children of Vietnam, founded in 1998, works to build bright futures for vulnerable children in Vietnam through educating, healing, sheltering, and nurturing. COV is passionate about the wellbeing of all vulnerable children each year through its grassroots work.
