Who We Are

Kids Across Cultures is a non-profit organization caring for children around the world in life changing ways. Like you, we are parents, educators, professionals, students, laborers and the like, who desire to look beyond ourselves and make a difference in this world. For a child to have no clean water, not enough food, no educational opportunities, or medical care is simply not acceptable. We are committed to creating change.

The current Board of Directors for Kids Across Cultures is a group of common people with an uncommon passion for making a difference in the lives of others. A working Board, each member serves as a volunteer in order to assure more resources are available for the children.
Why We Ride

Kids Across Cultures cares about kids. If you rode the “Pepper” in previous years (Tour De Agua is formerly known as the Tour De Pepper), know that you made a difference in this world.  Proceeds from previous rides had far reaching impact! Kids Across Cultures, along with your help, was able to provide hunger relief to the Horn of Africa, and Tarahumara Indians in Mexico, give educational opportunities for trafficked children in S.E. Asia, and provide mosquito nets for thousands of kids in Zanzibar who are susceptible to malaria. These were just a few of the ways the Tour de Pepper made a difference. THANK YOU riders & sponsors!  By riding the Tour De Agua, you become part of a cycle of change!
