A new army of women drivers starts its journey tomorrow! 20 new Roos beginning their journey to a new life, learning new skills, earning respect and taking the step to make Bangalore a safer city!
I recently met with 40 ladies in an Aanganwadi at Indiranagar. All for such lower income segments of society, but all with pride on their shoulders. Amazing group bonding and loyalty, each one pull one, for the benefit of all concept. 20 of them enrolled for driving training, breaking the shackles of regular jobs they had been mandated to do till date by their societies, by their families. Another 10 actually decided to take up education, so that atleast a year later, they are able to join this new found army of women drivers. The faith in their eyes is so clearly visible. They know that they are going to make a difference, they know that they will contribute in making life safer for all of us.
Hats off to all my Roos! I am so proud of you!
