Chooda is a registered 501c3, headquartered out of San Francisco, California. We are committed to promoting the health and well-being, economic stability, and sustainable development of countries abroad by partnering with local organizations working in HIV/AIDS, global health, women’s empowerment, and economic development. Chooda's funding provides resources to small and large organizations, some of which would not otherwise have access to international funding. Our flagship program, Bike Zambia, is an event where riders build community with other globally-minded cyclists, participate in Zambian culture through immersive experiences, and see first hand the impact that our partners have. It is the aim of Chooda for program participants to become lifelong ambassadors and benefactors of the organizations they meet. Bike Zambia is in it’s seventh successful year, with participants raising $800,000 towards a 325 mile ride that benefits organizations on the ground in Zambia.
