They can now travel farther, explore more, and realize their full potential.

The introduction of bicycles to the students is like giving them a key to unlock the door to a new world of opportunities: they can now travel farther, explore more, and realize their full potential.


As a solution to the problem of students facing transportation difficulties, Creating Possibilities Nepal ( CP Nepal) collaborated with the Education, Youth, and Sports Department of Rapti Rural Municipality to give bicycles to thirty students from Bhalubang Nepal National Secondary School in Ward 1, Maurya Ghat Secondary School in Ward 4, and Sisahaniya Secondary School in Ward 5. The thirty bicycles, worth Rs. 25,000 were given as a gift to help the students commute to school.


CP Nepal identified that many students in the Rapti Rural Municipality were experiencing challenges accessing education due to lack of transportation. In response, CP Nepal generously provided bicycles to three schools in the area. This initiative was highly beneficial as it provided students with a reliable mode of transportation to commute to and from school. As a result, students could attend school consistently and gain essential skills and knowledge to achieve success.


The chairman of Rapti Rural Municipality Ward 4, Bir Bahadur Chaudhary, and the chairman of the Municipality, Prakash Bisht, were present as chiefguests at the program. Chairman Bisht stated that distributing bicycles would improve the students' punctuality and benefit their health by managing their time efficiently.


CP Nepal has been working in education and girls empowerment activities since it was established in Gadhawa Rural Municipality of Dang in 2064 B.S. Its work has expanded to Rapti Rural Municipality, Gadhawa Rural Municipality, and Rajpur Rural Municipality. The organization builds infrastructure and empowers women based on the community's needs. It started its welfare program with 20 ex-bonded girls for education now has over 500 students, including 51 mother groups. Recently, CP Nepal provided bicycles to over 1,500 students studying in different schools across the three municipalities. Deepa Chaudhary, the student coordinator of CP Nepal, shared this information.




The availability of bicycles has positively impacted the lives of students, such as Tika Budha, a 12th-grade student at Sisahaniya Secondary School. The convenient mode of transportation has allowed students to arrive at school punctually, giving them ample time to focus on their studies. Moreover, it has helped reduce the time spent on household chores, such as fetching firewood from the jungle, which previously took more than 3-4 hours but now only takes 1 to 2 hours with bicycles.


The use of bicycles has also eliminated the need to pay for tuk-tuk rides to the market, saving both time and money for the students. The bicycles have a low maintenance cost and have other indirect benefits, such as the ability to transport siblings to school on the back. This has resulted in more time for studies and for leisure activities, allowing the students to become more productive and to live a healthier lifestyle. Additionally, it has created a sense of freedom, independence, and confidence among the students. Overall, the distribution of bicycles has proven to be a constructive measure for students' education and daily lives.


The program that distributed bicycles in Rapti Rural Municipality was attended by Vice Chairman Kamalapati Chaudhary, Chief Administrative Officer Nembahadur Oli, Education, Youth, and Sports Chief Vishwas Vik, Principal Maavi Mauryaghatki Sita Rijal, and other officials.
