The biggest effect of receiving the grant was that Bikes 4 Orphans gained public awareness. Two local newspapers have interviewed me about Bikes 4 Orphans after finding out that I had received the grant. Because Bikes 4 Orphans is not an official non-profit organization, the grant was pivotal in legitimizing Bikes 4 Orphans. Since receiving your grants, other orphanages have found out about Bikes 4 Orphans and have requested bicycles for their children.
