The SchoolCycle initiative within the UNFPA Girl Up project was launched in 2014. In developing countries, distance is one of the biggest obstacles to girls attending school. Schools in rural areas are often miles away from the village, which forces children to walk long distances along dangerous terrain and put them at risk of violence and harassment. With the power of the bicycle, the SchoolCycle initiative aims to eliminate the barrier of distance for school-age girls in marginalized areas in several developing parts of the world, including Guatemala and Malawi. A bike can give a girl access to an education, and thereby a better future. The project is dependent on donations, a 125 USD donation provides a girl with a bike, spare parts, and training.Globally, but especially in rural areas, we have identified several similar initiatives with the goal of mobilizing school girls and,with bicycles,giving them a brighter future.
