I have the privilege of raising funds for a very innovative organization called The Campus Bicycle Project (https://www.facebook.com/CampusBicycleProject). Started by a group of college students their goal is simple, provide bicycles to children in rural India to help them commute to school.

Due to the geographic terrain of the country children in rural India sometimes live very far away from or the way to school is very difficult. The Campus Bicycle Project found a simple solution...Provide these kids with bicycles. 

I strongly believe that the key to safety of women & girls lies in education. Through this initiative The Campus Bicycle Project provides these children a chance of getting to an education. 

Getting these children to education is only the first step but an important one if we ever hope to create a new generation sensitive to fellow humans. 

You can read a little more about their work here http://www.laptopskinvault.com/the-campus-bicycle-project I have been trying to help them through my entrepreneurial venture The Laptop Skin Vault but that's just a drop in the ocean.
