Valley Sun Newspaper Coverage

Thank you to La CaƱada Valley Sun and Glendale News-Press for covering our story! We hope that with more media coverage, we can show the world the power of bicycles!
A special thanks to Sara Cardine for the wonderful article.


On Friday, youth at the Rose of Sharon Orphanage in Harare, Zimbabwe, whose young lives are not often punctuated by moments of joy, were surprised by a very special delivery.
Forty-five new bicycles arrived on the campus, donated to help provide a reliable means of transportation and, in the process, help improve the quality of their lives.
More than 10,200 miles away, members of the nonprofit Bikes 4 Orphans anxiously awaited confirmation of receipt, imagining the children’s reactions when they learned the bikes would be theirs.

Bicycle Relief for helping us with the delivery and a special thanks to Serving Orphans Worldwide for putting us in touch with Fatima Maruta, the director of the orphanage. These bicycles will change 45 lives for the better and we are all able to do that from thousands of miles away. 

Additionally, this is the single largest delivery to one location we have done so far. We are so thrilled and proud of our community.

Group's charity event aims to donate bikes to orphans

Thank you Vallysun Newspaper for covering our event. 
In 2012, St. Francis High School’s Sebouh Bazikian made a promise to raise $5,000 to provide orphans in Kenya with bicycles that would get them to school safely and potentially change their lives forever.
He created a blog, Bikes 4 Orphans, to raise money and reached out to family and friends. With help from the aid organization World Bike Relief, the high school senior traveled in 2013 with his family to the Machao Orphanage in Makueni County to make the delivery.
