Dear  Gram Vikas Trust Friends and Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support of the “Give A Bicycle To A Girl – Help Her To Go School” Project.

Gram Vikas Trust started this initiative program in support of girls for who wish to continue higher education. Under this program young girls get bicycle to continue higher education. Lack of transport facilities force girls to drop out from school after 7th grade. Gram Vikas Trust have provided bicycle to hundreds of girls. Bicycle program helps them to travel and continue high school. After high school they also entered graduate program. Gram Vikas Trust  also organizes five days residential “Jivan Utkarsh Sibir” (career development) for these girls.

What the Bicycle Project has produced……

The Aladar village of Vagra block have up to 6th standard Government run primary schools.  Since 2009 none of the girl children enrolled in 7th standard. No girl children educated up to 8th standard from the village. The Female Literacy rate of the village is also lowest in the block.  100 % drop out rate among the girl children after 6th standard. In the year 2009 onward Gram Vikas Trust decide to provide Bicycle to each girl who passed 6th standard from the village school and enroll them in nearby village Goladra in 7th standard.  Since 2009 onward 100 % girls from Aladar village enrolled in 7th standard and after 7th standard they enrolled in 8th standard in Kadodara village for studying upto 10th . This is the history in the village that bicycle motivate girl children and parent to reduce drop out rate from 100 % to 0 %.

All the village girls are really happy that they got  their own bicycle  thanks to the help of the donators and so they wants so say “Thank you” to all people who show interest on the needs from rural girls like them.

This year in 2011 we have donated 250 more bicycles to the school girls in drought prone villages of Vagra block of Bharuch District..

I am thankful to the donors who have supported theses young girls to dream whatever they wish to. We greatly appreciate all the support you have given us so far and hope that you will be able to help us in for our future projects.

Again thanks!!
