About Us

I have a passion for justice issues and a stubborn desire to carry things through to the end. Little did I know that our 2019 bike trip around Uganda was just the beginning to a long-time relationship with the community of Kassanda. As a teacher myself, I understand the importance of education and my passion project of helping keep Kassanda Seed School up and running well and with integrity fits well into that value and priority. 

I love the outdoors. I love to camp and don’t mind getting dirty and I enjoy doing adventurous things with my husband. I also love East Africa. And part of my life’s purpose is to help the vulnerable in ways that are meaningful. My motivation for every day of this trip was the sweet children of Kassanda Children’s Aid, many of whom I’ve met in person, who have very little hope in general, and none at all if they can’t go to school. I wanted to do something about that. ~ Stacy

I am the other half of this relationship and I dare to say that my love of cycling has rubbed off on my wife.  Biking gives me a sense of freedom that I do not feel in other activities. I love being independent and testing myself against the terrain. As I roll through the mountains and force myself through the wind, cycling teaches me perseverance and determination.

The bike is critical to the people in East Africa and is the perfect way for me personally to connect to other cultures. I also enjoy supporting our vulnerable students with an opportunity to attend school.  ~ John
