More Bicyles for Education and Empowerment

Concentrating

It was the last day of the year 2017 and I was asking the children at Khoj School for Community Education about their new year resolutions. Habiba and other girls from grade six shared animatedly their resolve to learn how to ride a bicycle which showed their burning desire to break barriers and breathe freedom. 

As Khoj had already procured two girls' bicycles, our new year gift to the school became a vehicle for fulfilling their resolution. The bikes are colourful and easy to ride for younger girls. On January 2, they started to learn how to ride those bicycles and in a matter of one week, a majority of them can now ride confidently.

The day when they took their bikes on the main road of the twin villages, their excitement was a spectacle to remember. To see girls riding bicycles in the village was something unbelievable for the village community. The passers-by stopped and looked at the bike riders in amazement. But their looks didn't bother the girls at all. 

The bikes are being used for training of the girls. Our future plan is to award those girls bicycles who are the best performing and come to school from longer distances.

We are very grateful to our friends and supporters who donate generously help us help the children work for a happy and equitable life. For girls' bikes, we are grateful, especially to Shoes by Shaherazad at www.shaherazad.com.
