We Are Privileged To Support Local And Global Organizations

Since its first year in 2013, the annual ride has raised over $260,000. Ride 4 Orphans supports orphan projects at our SRC church plant locations in Chad, Malawi, Haiti and local foster care organizations, 4KIDS of South Florida and Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus. One hundred percent of all proceeds go directly to the chosen organizations who work with orphans and foster children locally and globally.

Mission:Chad

Village Altonodji, Moundou, Chad, Africa

The Village Altonodji orphan village is home to 120 orphans and has a school, a clinic, a chapel and library that serves the surrounding community.

The Ride 4 Orphans helped to fund a new solar power project for the campus, and funds from the 2017 Ride 4 Orphans will be used to repair or replace the solar water pump that supplies water to the campus. Funds from the 2016 ride were used to provide internet access for the village. Learn more »

 

The Global Orphan Project

Pothawira Village, Salima, Malawi, Africa

Pothawira means “safe haven” in Chichewa, Malawi’s native language. Like many countries in sub-Saharan African, Malawi has been decimated by AIDS and the crushing weight of poverty. Pothawira Village is a community that includes a church, school, children’s homes, and clinic, with plans for a birthing center, medical center, and several agricultural development projects.  The Ride 4 Orphans has provided funding for a solar power project for the village. Learn more »

I can’t wait to see lights on in November. The kids are looking forward to being able to study at night, and I can’t wait to go back to the clinic and see patients with lights and do procedures without using my iPhone flash light! This is a life changing gift for Pothawira! Thank you Ride 4 Orphans!
— Dr. Anne Alaniz, Pothawira Village, Malawi
ESMI is extremely thankful to the Ride 4 Orphan event that has so greatly benefited not only the children at the Fayeton Children’s Village, but also the surrounding community. The transformation is evident both spiritually and physically. At the medical clinic, visiting teams are able to work more efficiently.The church now has evening services after sundown and offers music lessons to the children at Fayeton without the worry of the cost of running a generator. The presence of electricity has also taken away the children’s fear of the dark. They sleep comfortably at nights knowing that if they need to, they can have light with just the flick of a switch. Lastly, the children can stay up later to do their studies. One of our older girls, after taking the national exam several times, was able to pass this year because with the electricity, she had more study time. Thank you, Ride 4 Orphan for making this all possible!
— Dr. Dony St. Germain, President, El Shaddai Ministries International
When I lived at VA from 2011-2012, the centre was completely dark at night for many months because the generator was not working. Coming back this March, I was excited to see the centre alive even at night. The students were able to run extracurricular clubs like Peace club and choir practice in the evenings because they had light to see by. Children were studying their “cahiers” (school books) late at night to get ready for their tests the next day, something they were struggling to do in previous years because only a few students had flashlights to read by at night. They had such a hard time finding the time to study and prepare before! The solar lighting has had a huge impact for every person living at VA.

Since 2013 Ride 4 Orphans has been a huge blessing to 4KIDS! From it’s start just 3 years ago Ride 4 Orphans has donated nearly $15,000 to support the 4KIDS mission of a ‘home for every child’. In that time 4KIDS doubled their number of foster homes and doubled the number of children served in Palm Beach County. Ride 4 Orphans is an incredible example of community partnership for the common cause of the modern-day orphan. 4KIDS is proud to benefit from the hard work of Ride 4 Orphans until every child has a home.
— Tom Lukasik, 4KIDS Vice President of Community Engagement.
In 2014, we launched a community based Capital Campaign called Alumni Impact to help fund two projects on our campus, our Extended Foster Care Girls Cottage and our Jeannine and Leland Morris Art, Education and Wellness Center. The AEW Center will be a place where the children and young adults we serve can enjoy sports specific training, music and culinary arts as well as come together with members of the community for fellowship and learning. Ride 4 Orphans and Spanish River Church have been instrumental in helping us create awareness in the community as well as help us fund this project, scheduled to open in the fall of 2015, for our kids to enjoy. Through your continued efforts, we will be able to purchase equipment for use in the facility and develop programs which will enhance the experience of living on our campus for these foster children. We are so thankful for the outpouring of support we have received through this event and the awareness it helps create in our community about the work we do at Place of Hope. We are honored to be the beneficiary of this event in February 2016!
— Charles L. Bender, Executive Director Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus
