Every monthly donation helps to educate more girls like Ramila
Ramila is the oldest daughter in her family of eight. She was a bright student but almost discontinued her education as the high school was very far from her village.
There was no transport and she had to spend hours walking from and to school. Keeping her safety in mind, her mother decided to stop her education. She then approached Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) who helped her with a bicycle.
This greatly reduced her travel time and now is a happy student with dreams of enrolling in university someday.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
Studies show that 85% of girls discontinue education after 5th or 7th grade because they cannot access the nearest school. Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) is a national level organization that works with the rural youth in the villages of Gujarat. They work on creating equal opportunities to overcome economic and social challenges for women.
The main purpose of the project is to provide transport facility to girl children who have passed the 7th standard since there is no higher class within the village. This reduces the dropouts among girl children and supports them for higher education in nearby villages.
The program also tracks the children who have received the bicycles through their schools. When you donate to this program can help a girl child continue her education and secure her future.
