Triumph Motorcycle India organised a special Triumph Freedom Ride on the 72nd Independence Day of India. But far from just being a get-together of like-minded motorcycling enthusiasts, it also enabled generous support towards girl child education.

A total of 513 riders participated in the ride, and donated to support the campaign ‘#SheCanFly’ by Smile Foundation. Through this one full year of education for girl children will be covered. The organisation is currently running 250 welfare projects spread in 25 states in the country, and improving the lives of more than 4 lakh children.

Triumph Motorcycle India’s General Manager, Shoeb Farooq said, “It was fantastic to see so many of our riders turning up for the Independence Day ride, all riding for a noble cause, It was indeed a proud moment for all of us to be a part of this Freedom Ride.  In a country like ours, where the female population has limited access to education, it is imperative we continue to create opportunities for growing girl children to learn, grow and evolve. Like every year, Triumph enthusiasts have shown great amount of support for this noble cause wholeheartedly. I am certain that the number of riders will continue to rise and make the experience a memorable one.”

Smile Foundation’s Santanu Mishra said, “Education is the most important element of our upbringing and especially for women, as education empowers a woman towards a better life. We immensely appreciate the efforts taken by brand Triumph in partnering us to promote the cause of Girl Child- She can fly campaign. Through this initiative, we want to sensetize civil society and partner them in the process of empowering, educating and making our girl child stronger, to stand her own ground.”
