Sydney, 19 February 2013: ChildFund Australia is searching for 20 passionate cyclists to join the 2013 Sri Lanka Cycle Against Poverty, a 13-day travel adventure departing 24 November.

By joining this overseas challenge, you'll get fit, experience one of the world's most exotic islands and fundraise to provide goats to poor families, making a real difference in one of the most disadvantaged regions of the world.

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about development issues in Sri Lanka as you visit rural villages that ChildFund supports, meeting some of the children and families in communities benefiting from your fundraising.

“To a poor family a goat is a great stepping stone,” says ChildFund Australia CEO Nigel Spence. “It provides a regular source of income, the means to send their children to school – and hope for the future.”

Participants must fundraise at least $3340 for ChildFund Australia, plus cover their travel costs. Money raised will be used to provide 200 goats for impoverished families in three communities. The families will also be supported with essential resources, such as sheds, feed, vaccines and vitamins, livestock insurance and training to help kickstart their goat-rearing businesses.

In recent years, Sri Lanka has been hit by one devastating event after another. This is your chance to make a real difference.
