Give a girl a bike: help her to go to school

By Vanita Shinde | CAO of Mann Deshi

“I was excited for the day that I would get to ride my bicycle to school, and it finally arrived. I woke up early and got ready to go to school. Before school I arrived at the ground, and I saw many other girls like myself there. After some time, the chairperson of Mann Deshi, Madam Chetna Sinha, arrived. The bicycles were given to us by Madam Chetna Sinha. I was very happy. I rode home on the bicycle to show my mother, and she was very excited. My mother told the entire village about the bicycle. I saved a lot of my time, and used it to study more and help my mother at home. I’m very thankful that the Mann Deshi gives bicycles to girls that are very poor and in need. I know that the other girls were also able to save a lot of time from their commute, and decrease the pain in their legs from walking such long distances every day.” Says Sonam.

On the 30th June 2015, the Mann Deshi Foundation launched a “Freedom Ride Program” bicycle rally and giveaway program in partnership with Atma Cycle. Mann Deshi Foundation has implemented this program as a solution for those young girls in rural Indian communities who otherwise could not afford transportation to school on they reach adolescence, in order to continue their education.

The bicycle giveaway and rally was in partnership with Atma Cycle, a not-for-profit based in Australia that works to deliver bicycles to girls in India so that they may continue their education. During this rally, Mann Deshi donated 100 bicycles to schoolgirls, which will prove greatly beneficial to both their lives and that of their families.

Mann Deshi is thankful to Global Giving as this all possible because of Global Giving Supporters.
