SPEED Trust was the first indian organization in 2004 to enable women to drive three-wheeler taxi (autorickshaws). This innovative and revolutionary program allowed dozens of women to leave a very poor life and helped them do an once exclusively male activity. They now earn a salary two or three times higher than that of other families in the slum.

After a 6 months training, candidates pass their driving licence. SPEED Trust finances the vehicle; they will reimburse the organization and that way, they are sure to be full owner instead of renting their vehicle from other renting owners.

You can help these women by booking a Chennai day-visit-trip with them.
