Triumph Motorcycles India, in association with Smile Foundation, would organize ‘Ride for Freedom’ on 15th August across 16 cities in the country to commemorate the 71st Indian Independence Day. The company and Smile foundation have come together to support the cause of Girl Child Education. The iconic British bike maker is reaching out to its 5000-strong customer base and beyond to get participants to donate towards Smile Foundation’s contribution in the area of primary education. In the past, Triumph has successfully sponsored the education of more than 200 girl children across communities.
Spearheading India operations Mr. Shoeb Farooq, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles India, will be flagging off the ride from New Delhi. He said, “It is a proud moment as an Indian to be a part of this Freedom Ride for such a noble cause. In a country like ours, where the female population has limited access to education, it is imperative we create opportunities for growing girl children to learn, grow and evolve. Through these rides, our objective is to create awareness and help children receive quality education, I am certain that this year too, like every year, Triumph enthusiasts will support this cause wholeheartedly.” The “#SheCanFly” Campaign ride will be flagged off and end at Triumph dealerships across cities.
“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.” – Mr. Santanu Mishra, Co-Founder and Executive Trustee, Smile Foundation
