The Pink Rickshaw Project

One of the main projects we support is ‘The Pink Rickshaw’ project. The Pink Rickshaw is a truly special initiative which provides a safe mode of transport for the women of Lahore, Pakistan. Pakistani streets are notoriously known for the lack of unsafe transport for women.
The Pink Rickshaw’s main goals are to: enable women to become economically independent and to offer them a safer mode of public transport. The project does not only provide a safer atmosphere for the women of Pakistan, but they are also trained to become drivers for other women - learning a brand new skillset. The pink rickshaws are leased to women for two years and part of their salaries can contribute towards them becoming owners of their own pink rickshaw.
