At Vélosophy they bring great urban commuters to biking citizens around the globe, at the same time as they co-operate with UNICEF to provide schoolgirls in Ghana with bicycles. – For every Vélosophy they sell they donate another bicycle to a young girl – bringing her hope of a brighter future.
Fact is that giving a girl a bicycle will increase her presence in school with close to 30% and her results with as much as 60%. And according to Plan UK – an extra year of education increases a girls’ income by 10 to 20 per cent and is a significant step on the road to breaking the cycle of poverty. Educated girls mean the chance of a better life for themselves and their children, a more prosperous community, a better workforce and a wealthier nation. It is facts like that, that inspire them to do what they do.
