Summary

In rural areas of India more than 60% of children drop out of school after 5th grade. High schools are not available in rural villages and girls need to travel long distance to pursue higher education. A lack of transportation and infrastructure causes parents to drop their daughters out of school. Mann Deshi Foundation gives this opportunity to girls by providing a bicycle and fulfills their dream of going to school. The journey to school will become safer and faster than before.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In rural areas of India more than 60% of children drop out of school after 5th grade. High schools are not available in rural villages and girls need to travel long distance to pursue higher education. But a lack of transportation and infrastructure causes parents to drop their daughters out of school. The results of school drop out are labor work, early marriages, pregnancy, and girls are more likely to be exposed to violence.

How will this project solve this problem?

Every girl deserves to go to school. Mann Deshi Foundation gives this opportunity to girls by providing a bicycle and fulfills their dream of going to school. Gifting a bicycle to a girl makes it possible to save travel time and focus on her studies. The journey to school becomes safer and faster than before.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through education girls can become independent and successful. It releases them from poverty and repression. This program has been running for 5 years and has given over 7,400 bicycles to young girls.
