Free Cycle Distribution at FFLV

As a part of providing free transportation to our girls so that they can easily come to school, last month we donated  free bicycles to some of those living in far off areas where  bullock carts and buses have no access to pick them up and bring them to school. To make their travelling safe and easy, we provided 7 girls of our schools with a bicycle each so that they can regularly attend the school.
90% of the girls enrolled in our school come from rural areas located a few kilometers away from our school, areas which are reachable via remote unpaved roads . This makes it unsafe for the girls to travel alone considering the high crime rate in India, especially the rural areas. Travelling alone can increase their chances of getting raped or kidnapped. The parents also feel uncomfortable to send their girls to school from a safety point of view. Moreover, the expenses involved to book a transportation on their own to send the girls to school can be expensive. Thus, providing transportation to these girls not only ensures their safety, but also minimizes chances of absenteeism and a reduced drop-out rate to a great extent.
