Rickshaw (Tuk-Tuk) Skill Training

An Electric Rickshaw Mechanic Training Program for Women

Economic Empowerment



The Challenge

In an ever changing world where climate is becoming more challenging, women and their communities are left with little resources to adapt to these adversities. By equipping these women with essential mechanical expertise, we believe they can serve as catalysts to uplift their communities economically.

The Solution

The EV Rickshaw Mechanic Training Program is exclusively focused on equipping rural women with skills in the maintenance and repair of electric rickshaws (Tuk-Tuks). This initiative aims to foster technical expertise, economic independence, and sustainable transportation practices. The program is dedicated to providing in-depth mechanic training, empowering women to become proficient in the technical aspects of EV Rickshaw maintenance.

The Lasting Impact

The Desai Foundation’s EV Rickshaw Skill Training initiative is designed to empower women with skills that not only align with the evolving demands of the green economy but also strengthen their resilience in the face of climate adversities. This initiative is engineered with a self-sustaining model. The income generated by trained women will support ongoing training programs and foster the adoption of renewable energy and sustainable transportation, ensuring the longevity and financial stability of this initiative.

Join Our Initiative

Supporting the EV Rickshaw Skill Training program can have a profound impact on empowering women in rural India. Your involvement can help expand this initiative, creating more opportunities for sustainable livelihoods and community development.

    Bihar Goyal, a 30-year-old from Lonsara Khurd village in Madhya Pradesh, is supporting his family through daily-wage farm labor. The Desai Foundation’s help desk camp in his village provided valuable assistance: PAN cards, Ayushman cards, and e-Shramik cards.

    Bihar registered for a labor card, but an accident with a tractor left him with a severe leg injury. His labor card provided instant relief of Rs. 2 Lakhs and enrollment in the Economic Benefit Scheme, offering Rs. 1,000 per month. He’s grateful for the Desai Foundation’s Heroes for Humanity program, benefiting from the housing scheme associated with the labor card. Bihar is thankful for the Desai Foundation’s unwavering support.
