Learn to Ride
Village Bicycle Project

For women and girls in Ghana and Sierra Leone, learning to ride a bike is a ticket to independence and success. Village Bicycle Project devised a plan to empower women, first by teaching them to ride a bike. Once a girl learns to ride, she can run errands more efficiently, carry more firewood or transport gallons of water on her bike instead of on her head. Learning to ride a bike creates opportunity, changing lives for the better.
