Triumph Motorcycles India and Smile Foundation came together to support the cause of Girl Child Education. Continuing with the tradition of getting riders together for a good cause to commemorate Independence Day, Triumph organised the Ride for Freedom on August 15 across 14 cities in India.
More than 500 Triumph motorcycle owners participated to donate towards Smile Foundation’s work in the area of primary education. In the past, Triumph has sponsored the education of more than 200 girl children across communities.
Smile Foundation is known for its work towards healthcare and education for children, livelihood and empowerment for women. It benefits over 4 lakh children and their families every year. Their efforts also aid more than 200 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood women empowerment projects, in over 950 remote villages and slums across 25 Indian states.
Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, who led the ride from Pune, said that he firmly believes that true freedom comes from education. And in a country like India, where the female population is often disregarded, it is imperative everyone creates opportunities for young growing girl children to learn, grown and evolve.
Santanu Mishra, Co-Founder and Executive Trustee Smile Foundation said, “We immensely appreciate the efforts taken by brand Triumph in continuing to dedicate their valuable time, resources and energy to help us with our work and thankful to share our vision and to raise awareness on these issues.”
