Team Dai
Every year, Vientiane's Team Dai cycling team embarks on a multi-day cycling tour to raise funds for a local cause. 2019 will be the 12th edition of this event, and around 25 riders will be cycling 420 km from Vientiane to Luang Prabang over back roads climbing over 6600 meters in 4 days (7-8-9-10 March).


This year Team Dai is raising money for the Arda Hope Centre.

Hope Centre desires to serve the most vulnerable children and youth in the community to see them grow and develop in a healthy way and give them new hope for the future.
The HOPE Centre is a community outreach program that was started by ARDA Language Centre Vientiane in 2006 to provide a safe environment where children begging on the
streets, children living in slum communities and working children could stop in during the day to bathe, receive medical care, a nutritious meal, general education and be involved in other activities including arts & crafts, music, sports and participate in special events. The
staff also provides trauma counseling, educational therapy and social skills development to child victims of abuse and exploitation to help them overcome their pasts and lead productive lives. HOPE Centre is located on the same compound as the ARDA Language
Centre in Vientiane and welcomes every child, but particularly reaches out to children begging on the streets and children living in poor communities.

HOPE Centre also provides scholarships to help prevent children from begging or being forced into other forms of child labor and provides them with education.
Sports activities like soccer and volleyball are used to divert children and youth from being involved in drug abuse.

HOPE Centre staff work alongside families living in poor communities to alleviate child labor and exploitation by helping them improve their livelihoods, parenting skills and living conditions so that their children will have a suitable place to live and can attend school.

HOPE Centre helps over 200 children and youth who are at risk of abuse, exploitation, and human trafficking.

A great thank you to everyone who donated. The complete group of riders has arrived safely in Luang Prabang after an exhausting but unforgettable 4 days of riding over the back roads towards the north. With your help, the sales of tickets for the raffle, and the money from the riders (left over after all expenses) the goals has been exceeded. Also a great thanks to the sponsors who provided prizes for the raffle.
