Driving can be a powerful mean to empower women with skills, independence and self-confidence. Pink Wheels Taxi stands for the cause of women providing an advocacy platform for women’s mobility and empowerment. We are thriving to provide safe transportation for men and women alike and give local women better access to driving for private as well as professional purposes.
Originally from Dublin, Ireland, with a background in Economics and Sociology, and interest in global health, I have embarked on a career journey in public health.
I have in the past taught sexual and reproductive health to women and girls in rural Uganda, and undertaken community based health and disease mapping in rural and marginalised communities India.
Not only I have gained an insight into such sensitive topics in the context of a different cultures, I have also learned how to do so in a low resource environment while working as part of a multi-cultural team.
With experience and skills ranging from monitoring and evaluation, running baseline and end-line surveys, research, communications, debating, event organising, and other myriad experiences, I have honed my leadership and administrative skills, including attention to detail and clear communication, to take up the position of Asst Programme Coordinator, Healthcare Outreach in EduCARE India.
I look forward to contributing to and gaining a long-term experience in leadership role in EduCARE India and its affiliate programme organisations.

As the Project Director of EduCARE India, it is my mission to work and contribute towards creating an increasing number of informed, evolved and globally aware young people who can act as responsible global citizens with the ability to influence the creation of a more peaceful and sustainable world.
I am passionate about grassroot level community development, social work, global citizenship and sustainable development. Global awareness and education enables individuals to be more informed and aware and to evolve as global citizens. This empowers people to contribute towards developing more opportunities and capacities for global experiences whilst being more sensitive to global issues and sustainable development.
In the past, I have studied and worked in catering and hospitality services. My current aim is to be a self entrepreneur and I have joined EduCARE to further develop my skills and capacities.
