Project Details

HELP WOMEN EARN A LIVELIHOOD
The nationwide lockdowns badly affected daily wage earners and self-employed persons through loss of jobs. We will promote entrepreneurship among women, addressing low female labour force participation by supporting women with occupational tools that will allow them to start their own entrepreneurial ventures from home.


HELP TAXI/AUTO DRIVERS BE COVID READY
The drivers of regular black-and-yellow taxis or autorickshaws lack training on COVID-19 safety measures and do not have the resources for upradation, resulting in a higher risk of contracting infections for them and their passengers. As a result, passengers opt for private cab services leading to loss of livelihood for the black-and-yellow taxi/autorickshaw drivers. We are equipping these vehicles with safety screens, providing hygiene and sanitation material and training the drivers on COVID appropriate behaviour to maximise safety. This is done in collaboration with local RTOs and taxi/autorickshaw drivers’ unions.
