Wheels of Change: The Impact of Bicycles on Girls’ Education and Empowerment Outcomes in Zambia

The Wheels of Change are a randomized control trial conducted by Innovations for Poverty Action assessing the effectiveness of bicycles on girls’ education and empowerment in rural Zambia, with implications for scaling to reach millions of students across the developing regions of the world.

Bicycles are a cost effective and scalable solution to not only address the distance barrier to school, but also other broader empowerment and economic outcomes that enable communities to thrive. This is increasingly important as developing regions deal with COVID-19, and particularly the disproportionate impact on women and girls.
