The singer’s Clara Lionel Foundation has teamed up with Ofo—a bike sharing platform—to donate bicycles to school-aged girls in Malawi, as part of a 5 year “1 KM Action Campaign.”

As a global ambassador for The Global Partnership for Education, Rihanna went to Malawi this year, where advancement in school is very low (only 8% of kids go on to secondary school). So it’s clear that she has a heart for these people, and wants to see them have more opportunities, especially the children.

The scholarships will help to pay for schooling beyond high school. The bikes will assist on cutting down on the long walks these students, especially the young ladies, have to make just to get to school. Some students, and teachers as well, have already been provided with some bikes to help get to class on time.
