Every day, 15-year-old Ethel, would have to wake before the sun to finish her morning chores. This included chopping wood, fetching containers of water and washing clothes. She would come home late and not have the time or energy to study and complete homework. Before she owned a Buffalo Bicycle from World Bicycle Relief, she had to walk over two hours across hilly terrain every day to attend school. Before the Buffalo Bicycle, she would arrive at school already tired and would struggle to focus, though she loves science and wanted to learn. Her commute now takes 45 minutes. She is happy to arrive at school on time and pursue her goal of becoming a nurse. She gets home safely and no longer needs to stress about racing the sun. The Buffalo Bicycle has changed her life and now she prays that she stays healthy to continue pursuing her dream. As Ethel says, "If you mobilize me, I will mobilize others."
