had pioneered Asia’s 1st ever women taxi service, FORSCHE, in 2007,
in which she trained more than 1000 girls to take up the
profession. Since 2007 she has been been going strong
with 3 new companies in her belt, and with the ability
to say she has pulled out entire families from below
the poverty line through skill development and income
generation of more than Rs.10,000/-
Her current vision is to increase her past goal by training
10,000 women in the next 3 years by providing them
employment in the 2 wheeler rider platform
and taxi driving.
Considering that India has a large and untapped resource
of hardworking individuals that is currently being
underused and misused- its urban poor women. Does a
women really want to be restricted within the four
walls of her home just because familial pressure
required her to drop out of school? Does she really
want to earn income only as a domestic help or a cook?
Does she not want to own her own assets and work on a
level, which can bring her out of the private home-space?
Her current vision is to increase her past goal by
training 10,000 women in the next 3 years by
providing them employment in the 2 wheeler
rider platform and taxi driving.
Ms. Roy has now introduced another path breaking initiative
for women by providing a platform to train less fortunate
girls, mostly from BPL families with a skill so that
they can be financial empowered.
Skill development and the provision of tools without
the means to use it to gain meaningful income is
well intentioned but impractical – thus, Ms. Roy’s
initiative is a holistic measure of female labour.
