Rihanna wants to help young girls in Malawi get to school.


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."

"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," the singer said in a statement.

The foundation reports that the first batch of bikes have been delivered and are currently in use.

Rihanna visited Malawi back in June as an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education, aimed at helping end extreme poverty by 2030.
