Driving Empowers Women
The Driving Empowers Women programme empowers women to become professional care and bike taxi drivers to enable them to gain remunerative alternative livelihoods. The programme also enhances their awareness on rights and enables them to become independent and confident individuals in charge of their lives.
In 2019, Anjali became first taxi driver at Dharamsala. 30 more women are being mobilised under ‘Pink Wheels Taxi’ initiative, the first shared taxi service for women at Dharamsala and Kangra. Its mission: to provide safe, affordable and reliable transportation for women. PWT is directly empowering our working women by addressing a systemic transportation problem that exists in Indian cities.
