India grapples with severe vehicular pollution due to urbanization, leading to health risks and climate threats. Electric vehicles, emission-free, offer a sustainable solution. With electric vehicles in India projected to soar to 45-50 million by 2030 the transition to electric vehicles not only serves as an environmental solution in combating vehicular pollution but also presents an economic and gender-focused opportunity for rural women in India.


Empowering rural women through EV driving and maintenance training is pivotal in reducing carbon emissions and advancing environmental conservation. By offering comprehensive training, including environmental awareness and entrepreneurial opportunities, the program empowers women economically while contributing to the adoption of sustainable transportation solutions.

Long-Term Impact

The EV Rickshaw (Tuk-tuk) Skill Training promotes social and environmental sustainability in rural India by fostering renewable energy adoption and green innovations. With a robust funding model and monitoring systems, it engages local communities, cultivating knowledge-sharing and community ownership for long-term growth and inclusivity.
