46% of children who don’t go to school have to work to help their parents earn money. In rural Cambodia there are no school buses and parents do not have cars to take their children to school. Sometimes school is too far to walk, so children need a bike. By providing girls with a bike, the limited money their parents earn can be used to feed the family.

How Free To Shine’s project addresses this problem:

The money would be used to buy 50 new bikes. A new bike is more than just two tyres and some gears. A bike means being able to travel to and from school and ‘freedom’.

50 girls will have a bike so they can get to school.
