Women Bike Across Canada To Fundraise For Female Farmers

Could you travel 8,710 km with only a bike? Sarah French and Mary Fehr are doing a bike trip across Canada in order to fundraise a project for female farmer workers residing in Ghana.

I had lived in Argentina and in Spain as a university exchange, but in Nicaragua I really got to see poverty for the first time," Sarah said.

Mary discussed these issues with Sarah and they created "Bike to grow". They believed it would be symbolic to have two girls bike across Canada to support the MEDA project "Greater Rural Opportunities for Women in Ghana" which focused on female independence
