16 needy ladies are at present taking the free Auto driving lessons through a training institute and will very soon possess a driving licence, a dream of many ladies belonging to the underprivileged section of the society. (more ladies are expected to join the programme after the present batch). This is also a part of our women’s empowerment campaign.
October 2021, Auto Driving Course: As a part of our continuous efforts to equip students and others with additional skills, we have embarked on the path of empowering needy women with Auto Driving Skills. To start with, 20 ladies have enrolled for the course. More ladies have expressed interest and hope to join this campaign to acquire this additional skill. The target this year is to empower at least 25 ladies with this skill.
We hope that this additional skill will empower the ladies, enable them to earn some additional income & make them feel that they are moving up in the strata of the society. Some may be the proud owners of autos in the near future. In the photograph below are some of the interested ladies along with our Trustee, R. Radhakrishnan (in blue T Shirt) with Mrs. Vrushali Magdum, Stree Mukti Sanghatana Chief of Navi Mumbai.
