Give a girl a bike: help her go to school

By vanita shinde | CAO

Today I am capable to get to school without stress in time”, says Pranali.

Pranali currently is enrolled as a student in Hanuman Vidyalaya in Palashi. She is currently 13 years old and she is in 7th standard.  Her Parents are laborers.   She stays in Mankarwadi. Travelling to school every day by walking she says would be an arduous effort, “The distance between my school and my house is 4 Km. Walking up to school would take around 30-45 min. My legs and back would ache by the time I would reach school, and would be exhausted by the time I would get back home.”

In February 2013, Mann Deshi Foundation distributed cycles to schooling going girls from nearby villages, who were in ardent need of cycles for quick transportation from their homes to their schools.

Pranali goes on to say that by providing a cycle to her has helped reduce travelling time by half, and is able to reach school without stress in time. It has also helped her   devote more time for study and help her mother in household activities .She secured a “A”  Grade in 6th standard.   She has also named her bicycle as Mann Deshi Foundation, as a sign of gratitude to the origination.

Thanks to Mann Deshi Donors who help to reduce the girl's stress...
