A Way Forward
Films • 6m 3s
Many in the U.S. take the bicycle for granted. Not so for students like Diana and Angela in Kakamega, Kenya. These brave young women used to have to walk hours to and from school, dodging the predatory advances of motorcycle taxi drivers, and often arriving exhausted and terrified of the return journey. Now, thanks to the bicycles that they received from World Bicycle Relief, these hurdles have disappeared. A Way Forward tells Diana and Angela’s story through the voices of three generations of women working to empower the girls in Kakamega to pursue their dreams.
