Through its SchoolCycle initiative, Girl Up aims to help eliminate one of the biggest obstacles keeping girls out of school: distance. A bike can help a girl travel quickly and safely to and from school, and gives her the independence to travel freely around her community. That way, she can obtain the education she needs to create a better future for herself, her family and her community. A $125 donation provides a bike, spare parts and maintenance training to girls in greatest need identified by our partner, UNFPA.
Girl Up is excited to launch the 2017 SchoolCycle fundraising challenge. Launched in 2014, SchoolCycle is an initiative to provide bicycles to girls to help them access education and stay in school.
