In Maharashtra, one in two women are illiterate, and girls face countless obstacles in pursuing their education.
One of these obstacles is transportation to school.
Mann Deshi provides interest-free loans to girls to buy bicycles.
If a girl cannot afford the loan but shows a strong commitment to education, we give her a bicycle for free.
Over 5,000 girls ride to school on Mann Deshi bicycles.
Give a girl a bike, through our Global Giving page >
