Triumph Motorcycles are riding in support of a girl’s right to education across twelve cities in India, coinciding with Independence Day.
The renowned British motorcycle brand has joined forces with the Smile Foundation to encourage the growth of female education and extend its acceptance.
For the second time, Triumph will be participating in its ‘Ride for Freedom’, with all proceeds raised being donated to Smile Foundation in support of Girl Child Education. Each ride will start and end from a participating Triumph dealership.
Smile Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation working towards improving healthcare, education and the livelihood of children across India. So far, Smile Foundation has helped over 400,000 children and families each year.
The ‘Ride for Freedom’ event will coincide with the 70th anniversary of India’s independence.
Mr Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, said, “Education empowers freedom and India will become a free empowered country only when its girls are rightfully educated and protected.”
“Triumph Motorcycles’ ‘Ride for Freedom’ is a pledge, which we took last year along with our partner Smile Foundation to support Girl Child Education.”
“We received a good response through our riders and we believe it will be even better this year.”
“To commemorate the 70th year of free India, Triumph Motorcycles owners will hit the tarmac to pledge for this noble cause and together we shall contribute towards providing elementary education to the girl child and subsequently for a better future.”
