Kelly is a student at Umoja Secondary School in Eldoret, Kenya. She used to be worried on her long walk to school. As a girl, she did not feel safe. Now, with a bicycle, she has travels to school quickly and safely and has more time for studying.
"With an education you can be known to the world. You can fulfill your dreams," says Kelly.
Watch how the Power of Bicycles is helping Kelly achieve her academic dreams.
In rural regions of developing countries, distance is the most common barrier for children to access an education. Often students spend many hours each day walking to school. They arrive tired and have little time to study- and many end up dropping out. But, with a bicycle, all of that changes.
Through its 2017#GivingTuesday campaign, World Bicycle Relief hopes to empower many more students like Kelly to follow their educational dreams on two wheels.
