On July 12, Lotus Pedals delivered brand new bicycles and pumps to five promising young women enrolled in our Girls’ Access to Education (GATE) scholarship program in Phnom Penh, Cambodia to ensure they could get to school safely.

In urban environments like Phnom Penh, girls often face harassment and abuse while walking to school alone, and their risk increases as they reach adolescence, both as a result of their age and the longer commute to secondary school.

We interviewed one of the new Lotus Pedals recipients, Chea Daraty, who describes the danger she faced before receiving the bicycle.  Watch her short interview by clicking the link below.

Thank you again for helping us pave a way to school for hundreds of Cambodian girls each year.  To learn more about this project or pledge additional support, please visit http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/lotuspedals/

Happy girls!
