Rihanna is giving bikes to girls in Malawi to help their education
August 4, 2017
Rihanna is giving bikes to girls in Malawi to help them get an education.
The campaign called 1 Km Action will fund scholarships to help hundreds of girls attend secondary schools in Malawi.
Those who qualify for a scholarship will receive bikes to make sure they get to school.
According to the foundation, there are approximately 4.6 million students across Malawi but only 8% of students complete secondary school.
One of the reasons for this is because of the poor transport links.
“I’m so happy about the Clara Lionel Foundation’s new partnership with Ofo because it will help so many young people around the world receive a quality education,” Rihanna said.
“And also help the young girls of Malawi get to school safely, cutting down those very long walks they make to and from school all alone.”
Rihanna has a reputation for being a humanitarian.
Through her foundation, which is named after her grandparents, she has focused on providing children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls.
Her efforts helped win her Harvard University’s Humanitarian of the Year award.
