Join us in bringing a little Joy to the City of Joy this October with our Joy Ride for JOYYA

A lot of kids in Kolkata live pretty tough lives. Joyya is creating spaces where kids can just be kids. Where they can forget about the tough aspects of their lives (helping support their family, their current living conditions etc) and they can just play, have fun, and experience joy. Funds raised through Joyride will go towards buying equipment, running events, sending kids to school and opening up university opportunities, supporting youth groups, kids clubs, and having a whole lot of fun. We think that’s pretty cool.

We can work together to help these kids have positive experiences that impact them for a lifetime.

So what are you waiting for? Dream up a scheme and be on our team! Sign up to join our Joy Ride event (29th September) as an adult or child rider. Or develop your own challenge; you could bike in a costume or circle the park, or light yourself up, so you glow in the dark! Whatever cycling challenge you choose (and it doesn’t have to be crazy), join our team and set up your own fundraising page, find some sponsors, and let’s bring some joy together.
