MARUTI SUZUKI has been very welcoming of our concept and joined hands as our training partners. Maruti envisioned that in order to enable a professional driving career for these women, they would require focussed training skills that go way beyond the usual 10 hour driving course.They have devised a special scheme called UNNATI, included our inputs and structured a 50 hour training course for these women from such lower economic and education levels. Maruti also sponsors the formal training under their CSR Platform.
MAHINDRA FINANCE, under their CSR, along with AZAD FOUNDATION have been supporting and assisting us to provide holistic capacity building course for women drivers, based on Azad’s Women on Wheels model.
