Thank you Mr. President @EmmanuelMacron and Madame First Lady for the incredible meeting and passion for global and girls education! 🇫🇷 — Rihanna (@rihanna) July 26, 2017
Rihanna said in a statement: ‘I’m so happy about the Clara Lionel Foundation’s new partnership with ofo because it will help so many young people around the world receive a quality education, and also help the young girls of Malawi get to school safely, cutting down those very long walks they make to and from school all alone.’

ofo founder and CEO Dai Wei said: ‘We are delighted to work with Rihanna and the Clara Lionel Foundation on this innovative initiative as we are keen to help improve education accessibility for students living in poverty.
‘We believe in unlocking every corner in the world with equal access to education as well as with our bike-sharing scheme.’
CLF is a nonprofit organisation that funds education and health programs for impoverished communities across the globe, which the singer launched in 2012 and named after her grandparents. Rihanna recently met with the President and First Lady of France to discuss funding for the organisation.
Earlier this year Rihanna took a trip to Milawi. While there, she sought to discover how teachers, students and the government could work together to promote a better education for the children there.
