Rihanna giving bikes to girls in Malawi

Rihanna is giving bikes to girls in Malawi to help them get an education.  
It's part of a new partnership between the singer's Clara Lionel Foundation and Chinese bike-sharing company Ofo.  
 
The campaign called 1 KM Action will fund scholarships to help hundreds of girls attend secondary schools in Malawi. Those who qualify for a scholarship will receive bikes to make sure they get to school. 
 
According to the foundation, there are approximately 4.6 million students across Malawi but only eight per cent of students complete secondary school. One of the reasons for that is because of the poor transport links. 
 
Rihanna has a reputation for being a humanitarian. Through her foundation, which is named after her grandparents, she has focused on providing children with access to education in more than 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls.  
 
Her efforts helped win her Harvard University's Humanitarian of the Year award.
