Ride for Amy is an initiative to recruit cyclists for the Cape Town Cycle Tour, whose aim is to raise money for the Amy Foundation. The Amy Foundation’s mission is to provide a safe environment in challenged and vulnerable communities, where we develop emotionally well-rounded children and youth who make positive life choices and become contributing members of society.
Our vision is to provide the best children and youth programmes where all can achieve and succeed in life.
For 24 years, the Amy Foundation has been working to provide underprivileged learners in the Cape Town area with enrichment opportunities. With up to 1000 youngsters participating in our programmes daily, the Amy Foundation empowers both the participants at the schools as well as the surrounding communities.
It only costs R750 a month, or R9000 a year, to provide a youth living in poverty in the Western Cape with the opportunity to learn essential and creative skills, have a meal daily, and be exposed to exciting opportunities for their future.
The Western Cape has the highest level of youth crime, addiction, drug use, in South Africa, and the highest number of 7 to 13 year-olds arrested and charged by police. The Amy Foundation is fighting against these issues, and by sponsoring a youth, you are giving them a fighting chance against HIV/AIDS, involvement with crime, drug use, and violence through the power of education and the safety and support of our centres.
Your R750 a month, or R9000 a year, will pay for a youth’s transport to and from our centres, their education, their daily meal, and all of their equipment needed for the programmes. It also covers the cost for a youth to participate in school holiday programmes in which all accommodation, food, and activities are included.
We need you. Please help us by donating today.
Together changing lives!
