NGO YOU SUPPORTED: AZAD FOUNDATION
Drive towards dignity
Women can also work in professions traditionally reserved for men—that is the message Azad Foundation sends out to scores of women, especially those from underprivileged backgrounds. By training them to become chauffeurs, it has helped many escape violent marriages and move towards independence. The NGO's for-profit venture, which provides safe taxi services by women for women, has been able to strengthen its infrastructure and increase recruitment.
