Bicycles for Humanity Colorado has partnered with Every Orphan’s Hope to open a bike shop in Chongwe, Zambia.
Every Orphan’s Hope is a fantastic organization that takes a different approach to helping the thousands of orphans left behind by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Every Orphan’s Hope pairs eight children with one widow in new homes called “My Father’s House”. Together, this new family prepares children to navigate the school-to-work transition by mentoring them in the life skills they need to become self-sufficient adults
The project in Chongwe added a bike shop to a compound that house’s several Family Homes. The bike shop provides training and employment opportunities for the older children transitioning to adulthood and eventually to families of their own.
