Each year, on March 8, we celebrate, acknowledge and appreciate women for who they are. This day is not only about celebrating those who have achieved but also lifting and empowering those who are striving to do so.
In many parts of India, women are still fighting for their place and in some breaking barriers and records in areas such as music, arts, sport, science, politics and many more. To encourage them, BookASmile aimed to enable and empower the lives of 200 young marginalised girls in Alibaug Taluka of Maharashtra by donating 200 bicycles to promote health and fitness. This simple gift goes a long way in keeping them fit, helping them commute and boosting their confidence.
