24 Aug Sakha Cabs: Safe Transport Solutions for Women, By Women
Founder: Meenu Vadera
Sakha Cabs is a unique social enterprise, launched to provide safe transport solutions for women, by women in urban India. The Sakha Enteprise offers 3 main services. The cab service which is driven by women and is for women and children; A full time chauffeur service offering women and children private chauffeurs; as well as a more short term chauffeur service. Not only is this enterprise helping to protect women from crime and other threats present for them in urban India but they are also helping poor and deprived women with career opportunities in the Sakha fleet. These women are given full driver and navigation training, as well as self defence training, by private and government affiliates of the Sakha Enteprise. This ensures that a smart, confident and well trained woman is behind the wheels of your cab.
Why we love Sakha Cabs: A service like Sakha may seem ordinary but having safe, reliable transport gives women in urban India feel safe and gain confidence to travel alone, work and thrive.
