Gram Vikas Trust, Bharuch (GVT) helps the girl children for smooth teaching learning environment. The girls after primary education or pre-primary education go for their further studies at nearby villages. Many villages are far, more than 3 km. The girls usually go by walking to reach to the schools. The drop out ratio and irregularity in schools has observed frequently.
For this cause GVT is providing bicycles to the needy girls, who faces difficulty in reaching to the schools, to reduce the ratio of drop outs from school, to reduce the irregularity in school, for the girls’ security.
GVT frequently provides bicycles to these girls, recently GVT has given bicycles to 10 girls from Moti-Jamboi, and it has identified other girls which will be provide in next month. There are number of girls who dropped out due to distance, parents also feels insecure as they have to walk by lonely ways and other issues.

GVT has seen the benefits of bicycles, first it has reduce the drop out ratio, many girls were not studying as they have to walk, so they just dropping out from school after they complete their schooling in their villages. Second, the irregularity in school, GVT has seen such girls due to distance they become very irregular in school, which becomes a habit for them, for the small reason they do not attend school for few days and again they become regular, so the learning affects very much. The teacher are sharing that after providing bicycles the girls become regular. The other major reason is parents feel insecure as the girls have to walk miles alone from the lonely area, GVT has suggest to the girls and parents after giving bicycles that always go and come in group.
The bicycle project is really helpful for the girls to get the education, there are lot more girls who still feels insecure and dropping out from school, you can support for their bright future. And these girls are shining though they are poor.
