ABIC Gears up to Handover Bikes to Pink Panthers

The Angie Brooks International Centre for Women’s Empowerment, Leadership Development, International Peace and Security (ABIC) is currently wrapping up modalities to formally handover ten motorcycles to female motorcyclists in Monrovia and its environs.  The “Pink Panthers” project, which is sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme – Liberia is intended to economically empower several young girls through commercial motorcycling.

According to the Progamme Manager, Mrs. Henrietta Tolbert, ABIC is currently wrapping up arrangements with the police for clearance as well as concluding the insurance for the motorcycles after which the bikes will be handed over to the girls.

Since February 2015, ABIC-UNDP initiated a motorcyclist project known as Pink Panthers All-Girls Motorcycle Club. The girls have received capacity building training in self defense, bike maintenance, traffic signs, financial management and the fundamentals human rights among others.

On November 9, 2015, UNDP procured and turnover eleven motorcycles to ABIC under the project.

Realizing that women and girls are part of the most vulnerable groups, especially in snub communities in Liberia, they are often denied the access to social and economic opportunities, justice and fundamental human rights, the objectives of project include:

  • Ensure that females motorcyclists lives are improved
  • Ensure that all females’ motorcyclists are protected against violence and harassments in traffic.
  • Female motorcyclists are managers and owners of their own bikes
  • Ensure female motorcyclists are unified
  • Ensure that logistical support is provided
