Over 4.6 million Secondary School girls across Malawi are expected to receive bicycles and scholarship from well-known pop star Rihanna through her newly launched foundation called Clara Lionel Foundation.
Those who qualify for a scholarship will receive bikes to make sure they get to school.
According to the foundation, there are approximately 4.6 million students across Malawi but only 8% of students complete secondary school.
One of the reasons for this is because of the poor transport links.
“And also help the young girls of Malawi get to school safely, cutting down those very long walks they make to and from school all alone.”
Rihanna has a reputation for being a humanitarian.
Through her foundation, which is named after her grandparents, she has focused on providing children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls.
