give a girl a bike: help her go to school

  Dear Mann Deshi Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support of the Bicycle Project.

100 Rural School Girls are getting BICYCLES on the occasion of Women’s Day.  Your support will help them to continue their higher education.  For more information please click on :

“I want to become an engineer”. This was an aspiration of Ms. Swapa Bhandare. Mann Deshi started Freedom Ride program in support of girls for who wish to continue higher education. Lack of transport facilities force girls to drop out from school after 7th grade. The Mann Deshi Foundation has provided bicycle to thousands of girls. Bicycle program helps them to travel and continue high school. After high school they also enter graduate program. Mann Deshi also organizes career development workshop for these girls. In one of the workshop Ms. Bhandare said, “Without bicycle I would have dropped out of the school and would have become wage laborers in fields.” High schools education brought aspiration to these young girls. In career development workshop one of them said “I want to become an engineer”

On the occasion of Women’s Day, 8th March, 2013 Mann Deshi is distributing 100 bicycles to rural school girls.  We greatly appreciate all the support you have given us so far and hope that you will help us to make this program successful by providing grants to buy a girl a bicycle.    

Your generous donation will support these young girls to dream whatever they wish and also motivate to choose the option like becoming engineer.

Most Sincerely,

Mann Deshi Foundation
