Many thanks to everyone who donated to 'Give a bicycle to girls in Nepal to attend school'. We didn't fundraise sufficient to buy twenty one bicycles through GlobalGiving. This project is also a secondary project of 'The Girls'Education Project in Nepal'. Some generous donors from the project supported us to buy the bicycles. From now on, if any girls required a bicycle then its fundraising will be done through the Education Project on GlobalGiving. 

Any further progress on this activity will be communicated through the above project and donors will also be notified. 

Many thanks once again for you support to this project and looking forward to a similar support in the future.

New bicycle for the girls in H. secondary school
New bicycle for the girls in H. secondary school

Two of the girls have taken their final school year exam. The main aim of the Girl’s Education Project is to get girls through the final year of schooling. The Bicycle Project is a supplementary project of the Education Project. Hence, the two bicycles will be passed on to the girls reaching to higher secondary school if their school is far to walk.

Our record shows that eleven girls from the Education Project are in grade eighth that means the eleven girls will go to higher secondary from 15th of April 2017. Classes in the new year usually start from 21st of April. So basically, we need further bicycles in less four-week time.

Binita, Janki, Ramita, Ranjita, Lilam, Murti, Manisha, Sandhiya, Ahuliya, Nitu and Sunita are the girls will start their secondary schooling in this April. All the girls are from the poorest of the poor and Dalit families, therefore they will depend on us to provide a bicycle so that they can go to school regularly.

Currently, one-hundred and one girl are receiving our support through the Education Project and, we aim to provide a bicycle to twenty-one girls in total. But so far, we have been able to provide only ten bicycles. Hence, we need eleven more bicycles.

A bicycle costs only $90 in Nepal. If you can afford to spare cost to a bicycle, then please support us to support the girls. We appreciate your generosity. More information about the Girls’ Education Project at -

Seven girls (Nabisha, Kamala and Gita) out of the twenty-one have received a bicycle. Now, the girls are paddling off to school regularly, on time and with a smile on face. The girls were walking ten to fifteen kilometres each day to attend their school. It was not safe, and they were often late to their class. Kamala was full of tears but the tears of joy when she received the bicycle. No one in Kamala family ever owns a bicycle because they are very poor and can’t afford it. She used to sit and stares when others ride a bicycle with a hope that one day she will too. We taught her to ride the bicycle.

We have identified twenty-one girls are in most need of a bicycle, seven have already received, and so far, funding for fifteen bicycles have received. This includes offline fundraising too. In the next round, we are planning to provide a bicycle to all the reaming girls. To make it happen- funding for five more bicycles is needed. It can be purchased as a gift in the name of someone you care. Thank you for your support in advance. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We have already raised funding for eleven bicycles. This includes offline fundraising. Our aim is to provide these bicycles to the girls in January as, the need for it has became evident. 
Nabisha, one of the girls from the Girls' Education Project dropped off her schooling because her school is too far to walk. So we lent her the office spare bicycle. 
Her school attendance improved gradually and few months ago, Nabisha has finished her secondary schooling. You can amazing from this that how important role a bicycle can plan in educating girls from the poorest families in rural Nepal.
A local supplier is willing to supply these bicucles at very reasonable price. But we require funding for ten more bicycles. Please spread the word for the remaining funding of the project.
Thank you
