Pedal-to-learn is a project initiated, sponsored and sustained by the Rotary Club of Deonar. Bicycles are donated to the students in rural schools who walk more than 5 kms to attend school since ST buses and other modes of public transport are poor. The identified students have to walk for more than 5 km to reach the school from their Adivasi- Tribal wadies. The Rotary Club has started this humanitarian project, which facilitates easy and safe travel and helps to control school dropouts. About 800 students have benefitted from this so far.
