Just $50 can provide a bicycle to a girl in rural Maharashtra, India so she can travel to school.  Without the bike, many girls are forced to drop out of school because of the distance.  Consider making a donation in honor of a friend or loved one this holiday season, and help make education and a brighter future a reality for these girls.   Simply choose the "donate in honor of" option at checkout or learn more here.

If this project isn't right, you can still give the gift of changing the world with GlobalGiving's Gift Cards.  For as little as $10, recipients can choose to donate to any of the 800 projects on GlobalGiving.org.  Learn more about gift cards here.

Give a girl a bike: help her to go to school
In rural areas of India more than 60% of children drop out of school after 5th grade. High schools are not available in rural villages and girls need to travel long distance to pursue higher education. A lack of transportation and infrastructure causes parents to drop their daughters out of school. Mann Deshi Foundation gives this opportunity to girls by providing a bicycle and fulfills their dream of going to school. The journey to school will become safer and faster than before.
