Something About Me

Revathi Roy, an established social entrepreneur

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?

Vision

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.

INITIATIVE

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

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.
