To provide 250 cycles to tribal girl students who cannot afford to go to school.
Several villages in Uttar Pradesh such as Sonbhadra and Mirzapur have educational institutions facilitating studies for primary and upper primary students (I-VIII). However, once the students, particularly girls, get through the elementary level they are left with no means to continue their education.
Locals have shared that the children who choose to continue classes for high school have to walk at least five to 15 kilometers through dense terrain and forest lands in the absence of any mode of transport. Meanwhile, the others who drop out of school resort to menial jobs for survival. Very often financial dependence has been the root cause of such out-of-school girls falling prey to severe atrocities.
Hope Welfare Trust
In rural areas, educated girls and young women hold the potential to lead the path and break the cycle of poverty and violence. Realizing that, educating such women is of utmost importance to empower the individual as well as the community, Hope Welfare Trust, a volunteer-based not-for-profit organization, has distributed cycles to girls in a number of villages to enable them to commute to schools and colleges at a distance.
The organization has been working towards solving social issues in the villages of Uttar Pradesh for the last five years. The team has been dedicated to the causes of identifying and implementing ground-level solutions to uplift the rural population. Divyanshu Upadhyay, social activist, and secretary at Hope Welfare Trust said that they launched the initiative to distribute cycles to the girls belonging to economically disadvantaged families. As many as 50 cycles have been distributed till now and want to distribute 250 more cycles.
