A coffee company has, as part of corporate social responsibilities, been donating bicycles to school girls in Ghana.

In that respect, the companies intend to make a lasting and positive impact on the world.

The bicycles, per a report by dailymail.com.gh, are produced with recycled aluminum to enhance sustainability and style.

For every 1000 bicycles sold, the companies donate one to a school girl in Ghana.

The motive behind the donation is to ensure that the girls have a means of transport to school so that they can further their education and support themselves as well as their communities.

World Bicycle Relief reports that a reliable means of transportation to school enhances classroom attendance by 28% and chances of graduating to about 59%.

Each bicycle costs about GHC5000, excluding delivery.

In other news, YEN.com.gh is in possession of photos of a beautiful woman who has graduated from the university and has decided to sell items using a wheelbarrow.

The unidentified woman, who is reportedly a mother and the wife of a lawyer, took the bold decision as securing a job became a challenge after school.

She explained that she believes God takes people out of their comfort zone if he wants to bless them.
