Rihanna Donates Bikes to Malawi School Girls

Rih Rih’s loyalty isn’t just with Kendrick.

The “Love on the Brain” pop star is showing some more love to Malawi girls—by not only providing school scholarships, but bikes too.

Yes, bikes. No, she’s not searching for the next Ayesha McGowen.

Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation teamed up with bike-sharing platform ofo to donate bikes to Malawi girls receiving secondary school scholarships. So they can have a dependable way to get to class.

Rihanna Becomes Global Ambassador for Education

Transportation is a major prob in the SouthEast African nation, girls have to travel long distances to get to class, which isn’t safe or doable.

Hence only an 8% attendance for secondary school compared to 4.6 million attending primary.

Let’s sprinkle some black girl magic on this equation.

Rihanna, who visited Malawi in January as a Global Ambassador for education, proud to be leading the charge, here is what the Navy’s queen had to say:

I’m so happy about the Clara Lionel Foundation’s new partnership with ofo because it will help so many young people around the world receive a quality education, 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.”

All hail queen Rih.
