According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 18.3 million children, 1 in 4, live without a biological, step, or adoptive father in the home. Consequently, there is a father factor in nearly all social ills facing America today.

To end fatherlessness globally, each ride gives 50% of funds raised to Venture, and 50% to a local organization.
Each Fathers For The Fatherless location supports the work of a local organization. We work with location leaders to identify an organization in their community doing work in the area of fatherlessness.
Venture works to address fatherlessness along the border of Burma and Thailand in an area they call the “deadly line”. Thousands of kids are without parents due to the carnage of the world’s longest standing civil war. Venture works with local leaders like Rosebell and her husband Nirimit to shelter, feed, and provide education for orphaned children in this area.
