This autumn, DC Project manager Ino Retzlaff participates for the fifth time in the “Tour of Hope”, a charity bicycle ride through Thailand. The raised funds are used to build libraries for schools in remote areas and to donate bicycles so the children don’t have to take long walks to school every day. Digital Collections is a gold sponsor of the event.
The cyclists will start their trip in Pranburi near Bangkok on October 31 and then head 586 kilometres south, arriving in Khao Lak on November 7. As every year, they will also visit the school where this year’s library is built: Kra Buri School in the Ranong province.
Help us to support the project! You can get more information and donate on the Tour of Hope 2015 website.
