Cycling to School: Education for young girls

In countries like Pakistan where people did not like the education of the girls. They think that girls do not need education and when they are adults they need to get married and work at home. They mostly like that boys get married as they support the family after getting education. Organizations like Joy Foundation are a kind of hope for the young girls for a better future and education. We are trying our best to support and give awareness to the families and girls for their education. Many of the Girls did not attend the school because they think that school is far from their homes.

In this situation Joy Foundation through this project helps the girls to cycle and go to school like the boys. This will help them to get education and also be a part of the education society. Many girls also get skills as well travelling from village to city by cycle.  

Through this project Joy Foundation wants not only to provide the girls with cycles and make it possible for them to receive education but we also aim to create awareness for parents on the rights of girls and make them understand the need for equality for their girls. This will create a large impact. It will be easier for girls as well as cycles will be a means of travel for them and receiving education even if their schools are far would be easier and accessible for them. We thank all those who donated and we are looking forward to your support to reach out as many girls as we can and achieve our goal. Through this report we once again request to all our partners to please support us to help the girls to get education and support them for betterment of the society.

Joy Foundation has been supporting young women for their education. In a country like Pakistan, where people still don't find it important for girls to get education. These practices are still common in rural areas. as urban areas have developed and people have understood the rights of girls and women and are more open to equality. But sadly it is the opposite in majority of rural areas. Their common concern is how will the girls travel, their school are far away and its easier for boys to take buses or go by cycles. They think that education is for boys because they are able to travel but not important for girls because because they don't have means to travel and most likely end up at home doing house chores.

Through this project Joy Foundation wants not only to provide the girls with cycles and make it possible for them to recieve education but we also aim to create awareness for parents on the rights of girls and make them understand the need of equality for their girls. This will create a large impact. It will be easier for girls as well as cycles will be a means of travel for them and receiving education even if their schools are far would be easier and accessible for them. We thank all those who donated and we are looking forward to your support to reach out as many girls as we can and achieve our goal.

Joy Foundation has been working for Education since a decade. During this decade we saw that girls are more likely to drop out of schools as compared to boys. The main concern and the reason for this was that the girls do not have a conveyance or a source of traveling to the schools. This mostly happened with girls in rural areas as girls in urban areas had access to school easily. The rural girls had to travel to cities to their schools and colleges for continuing education beause the villages have only the facility of primary education and the girls will have to travel to cities to persue secondary or higher education. Hence, the result was that girls had to drop out of school and leave their education.

Joy Foundation has taken this initiative to provide the rural girls with bicycle so that they can travel to their educational facility easily and the school drop out rate of girls could decrease. Bicycles make it easier for girls and they can easily cross the barrier to their education. Education should be provided to all the children regardless of their gender and such initiatives should be supported and promoted because the future of the country belongs to the value and equality that we give to the girls and women of our country. This should not only be an initiative of Joy Foundation but others as well to make Pakistan a country that supports and promotes girls education.
