The Futures ’09 Project

In March 2009, 30 people will embark on a two-week cycle challenge through the streets of Cambodia. They will be riding to help the millions of innocent children who are forced into sexual slavery every year, a billion dollar industry in SE Asia.

Instead of just talking about doing something, I have committed myself to help end human trafficking by participating in the Futures ’09 Project. I will be one of the thirty people riding to help the millions of innocent children who are forced into sexual slavery every year.

 

In order to participate in the Futures ’09 Project, all 30 riders must raise a minimum of $6000 (AUS) or $3400 (USD) in donations for the Somaly Mam Foundation (www.Somaly.org). I have paid a registration fee of $500 (USD) as my personal contribution towards the cost of the trip. Because I am traveling from the U.S., I am also responsible for the cost of my trip (flight, helmet, cycling clothes, gratuities, etc.). 

 

Apart from using my own time to raise awareness and funds for the Somaly Mam Foundation (www.Somaly.org), the Futures ‘09 Project has been created to challenge each individual rider physically – the end result is a rewarding and uplifting experience. We will be visiting shelters of AFESIP/Somaly Mam Foundation, visiting various orphanages, learning new ways of life, experiencing new emotions and of course pushing our boundaries.

 

This is only the beginning.
