Grace used to arrive at school every day feeling completely exhausted. She is 15, and lives 25 km away from her nearest school in southern Malawi. The round trip to school meant Grace walked more than a marathon every day.

Bicycle Donation

Grace is extremely driven and has her sights set firmly on becoming a nurse. She also has no doubt about the value of educating girls: ‘If you teach a girl,’ she says, ‘you're teaching the whole nation.’

But her long journey to school sapped her energy, and parts of the journey made her feel vulnerable and unsafe.

The threat of Grace dropping out of school – in a country where only 40 per cent of women have any secondary education – was very real. But a simple and very effective solution – bicycles provided by Oxfam – has transformed school life for Grace.

 

Oxfam has so far provided bicycles to 30 girls in schools across Southern Malawi. 

HOW YOUR DONATIONS KEEP GIRLS IN SCHOOL

With your support, Oxfam will:
•    Provide bikes so girls can travel to school safely, and arrive feeling alert and ready to learn
•    Fund community groups to support and encourage girls to stay in school
•    Work with the communities to launch clubs in schools where children discuss issues that keep girls out of school, such as early marriage and pregnancy

Donate today and you can help many more girls like Grace move closer to their dreams.
