Riding to School on the Path to Success

Martha Kamara is 15 and a student in Mashelleth, Sierra Leone. Martha rides her bike over a mile each way to school. She saves money on bus fees, and as she is also able to go home for lunch, the bike saves her family even more money in lunch fees. Martha stops  at the market on the way home from school, saving her mother a lot of time. On the weekends, her father borrows her bike, which makes him very happy, too. Martha feels proud of her bike and tells everyone who asks her that biking is 4 times faster than walking. Bravo Martha!
