Pedaling for Pathways Togo

$3,390 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 62 people in 50 months

This summer my friend Michelle and I are biking across the U.S.! In addition to experiencing all of the beauty our country has to offer, we will be fundraising $2,500 for Pathways Togo, a non-profit working for women’s education and empowerment in Togo, West Africa. 100% of the funds raised will go toward intelligent and motivated Togolese girls. The money will be applied to scholarships, mentoring opportunities, leadership skills training, and small-scale community grants.

Why Pathways Togo?

I recently returned from a two-year Peace Corps service in Togo, West Africa. As one of the poorest nations in the world, Togo offers few educational opportunities for women and children. Less than 30% of Togolese girls are enrolled in high school. One of the initiatives working hard to change this is Pathways Togo.

Their Work

Led by Peace Corps Volunteers and inspiring Togolese partners, Pathways is an organization with one goal in mind: educate women and empower the world. Through scholarships, life skills training, and mentoring Pathways offers a rare opportunity for Togolese women and girls to pursue their personal goals and dreams.


During my two years in Togo I watched Pathways create positive change in the lives of Togolese women and girls across the nation. Now, even though I'm thousands of miles away, I want to continue to support this incredible program.

Be a part of something great. Donate today, and help empower Togolese women to bring change to their communities and to the world.

The final push! We have FIVE DAYS to raise $900! Share this link with friends and families to help bright, young Togolese girls receive an education. ANY contribution size helps.

Even if you think "I can't afford to make a donation" just think of how much money you spend on one night out to dinner. That's money that could also help a Togolese girl purchase school supplies for her freshman year in high school. Or attend a leadership conference. Or attend university. No donation is too small.

And as always, THANK YOU! Pedal on, Winter and Michelle
Almost done! Five days to raise $900!

Between cash, online, and private donations we have reached our goal of $2500! A HUGE thank you to all who have contributed and supported us so far! We wouldn't be here without you. Because our goal has been reached before the end of our cross-country bicycle trip we have decided to raise the goal from $2500 to $4000. That leaves just a few weeks to raise the remaining $1450, money that will go directly to motivated and deserving young Togolese girls. Thanks you friends for everything. Spread the word! :)
