Challenge

There are currently 64,4% unemployed black women living in South Africa. Although, 95% percent of welfare grants are distributed to communities through women. The aim is to give women financial autonomy, economic empowerment & address the systematic ways women have been marginalized & undervalued. Research shows that women who have financial autonomy & economic empowerment are at a lower risk of being victims of domestic violence. This project will enable 40 women become rideshare drivers.

Solution

The rideshare industry is expected to show an annual growth rate of 9.87%. Enabling women to become rideshare drivers has the potential of alleviating unemployment & domestic violence. We help womxn by equipping them with skills (drivers license, road & personal safety, platform access, finances) & access to safe peer-mentorship spaces. The increase in the rate of femicide has raised high personal safety concerns amongst women, & consequently created a niche market for women rideshare drivers.

Long-Term Impact

The economic impact of COVID19 which has disproportionately affected women in low-income South African communities. The project will enable 40 women to regain financial autonomy & economic independence as women view sustainable income as a ticket out of poverty. When women's basic needs of food, healthcare/adequate shelter are met, the opportunity to become active contributors in society, further inspiring & impacting other women through experiential learning, peer-mentorship& credible education
