Many girls in Cambodia do not attend school due to the long distance that must be traveled from their rural village to the nearest school. Parents do not want them walking 2-3 hours each way alone on remote roads or missing the valuable chore time at home. Access to a bicycle can mean the difference of whether a girl attends school or not.
Your gift will provide one bicycle for a girl in Camobodia. A bicycle can provide millions of girls in the developing world with a means to get themselves to school. Without this simple means of transportation, many parents will insist their daughters stay home to work the fields and tend to younger siblings, reinforcing the cycle of illiteracy and poverty among women. Give a simple gift that will provide a young girl with the opportunity to attend school everyday and perhaps change her life.
