BENEFITING: EDGE OF SEVEN INC
In rural areas of Nepal more than 60% of girls drop out of school after Class 5. Although school is free, transport costs deter rural families from sending girls to school. These families seek a mobile solution to make education a reality for their daughters.
How will this project solve this problem?
In order to offer girls a chance at an education, we provide bicycles at a 0% interest loan or donates the bicycle to the girls whose family do not afford loan.
Potential Long Term Impact
The girls deserve the chance to go to school; only through education can they become independent and successful, and be released from poverty and repression. As ongoing projects, we try to give 200 bicycles to girls each year, allowing them to continue their schooling.
Higher primary and secondary schools are most often located in a central village, which may be at a distance of several kilometers from satellite villages. The purpose of the girls bicycle project is to allow girls to overcome the distance barrier to education. We are promoting a scheme whereby the parents of girls can apply for zero percent loans towards the purchase of a bicycle or even girls who need most can get as a free gift.
Purpose / Goals
To create a self sustaining fund to help families purchase bicycles for girls The bicycles will be provided through zero percent loans or as grants.
