Thank you very much for your kind contribution to help us put people with disabilities in the driving seat through the Rickshaw Project. While our first rickshaw prototype is still in the development phase, this brief update highlights the recent progress. Apart from a major mechanical overhaul, we have successfully added:
A wheel-chair compartment for driver and passenger with disabilities
Car-like seats with seat-belts for driver and passenger
Foot-step on passenger side for easy entrance into the vehicle for the elderly and people with disabilities
New CNG cylinder with increased capacity
Apart from a complete beautification of the prototype rickshaw, there will be addition of:
Better Shock Absorber
Crutch-holder, Cup-holder, and a Fan
We are also aiming to initiate our work to build an R&D Workshop in January that will provide free consultancy to 100 persons with disabilities for making retrofitted motorcycles and rickshaws. Please contritute in the project to realize the dream of making an accessible society; kindly let your friends and loved ones know about it as well.
