Bicycle for a schoolgirl

Buy a bike for schoolgirl

Many girls living in rural areas face a long and dangerous journey to get to school. Whether it leads to them dropping out of school entirely, or missing lessons, it limits their chances of a life free from poverty in the future.

By buying a bicycle you could help girls get to school quickly and safely. And with an education, they can gain the skills they need to have the best opportunities in the future.

"The bicycle has contributed to my improved performance in class. Before I was not a regular in school due to the long distance (more than 11 miles) I had to walk each day." Diana, Ghana

Long and dangerous journeys make going to school for some girls simply impossible. Help girls get an education this Christmas!
