Since 2009, nearly 3000 girls and women have learned to ride a bike thanks to our Learn to Ride programs. Girls who live farthest from school (over 3 miles each way) have been awarded bikes to allow them to attend school more regularly, leading to better attendance and grades. We know more education leads to delayed child bearing and gives a woman and her family a better and healthier future. Riding is four times faster than walking and gives girls the added advantage of having more time for homework and chores.
