Power of the Pedal

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

We would like to share the story of Rupali.

Rupali is from Malwadi village in Maharashtra. She is in the 9th standard. 

Rupali belongs to a poor home. Her family is barely able to make ends meet. Because of this, Rupali cannot purchase any form of transport to reach school. Everyday, she has to walk 5km to reach her school. This arduous journey often tires her out and leaves her unable to pay attention in school or play with her friends. Further, her parents are agricultural workers which leaves Rupali in charge of the household chores and the caring of her little sister every morning before school.

In order to help children like Rupali, Mann Deshi Foundation is providing bicycles for them to commute to school in a quicker and easier way. Because of her new bike, she is able to reach school on time and pay attention to her studies! 

Rupali say’s “I am grateful to Mann Deshi for giving wings to my dream. My dream is to become a doctor and one day, I will achieve my dream."

Thank you so much for all our GlobalGiving supporters.
