SheCab
SheCab has come a long way since it's birth, 6 months ago. As on 28th Feb, we have 4 women drivers and 4 cars. 3 of the cars are compact cars, Maruti Suzuki Alto K 10, while the 4th is an SUV, donated to SheCab by a generous soul. All our 4 drivers hail from villages around Dehradun and have been motivated and trained by us to take up driving as a profession. This was a tough task and to get these 4 women, we had to talk to and motivate over 2000 women. At present we also have a trainee driver, who should be trained by next month. These women drivers can been seen changing a punctured car tyre and washing the cars in the lower two pictures.

We are working from a small rooftop shed, which acts as our Control Room. We are in the process of building an app and an ecomm online booking website.

Financially speaking, we are breaking even, which is quite good, considering that businesses generally take a year or two to break even.

We have approached a number of companies to help SheCab under their CSR projects, unfortunately till today, the response has been poor. If we could get good support, we can brand SheCab professionally.

Customer feedback has been excellent. Reviews of SheCab on Facebook have been very positive.

Exam Time at Chamanpuri Center of Education@YourDoorStep Program
Completion of a Class in slums near Patel Nagar, DehraDun
12 girls completed our 2 month Spoken English & Basic Computers course in a slum near Patel Nagar. It was heartening to see to see girls who never seen a laptop previously now writing Excel formulas. We were honoured to have Mrs Jyoti Kainthola Doval as our Chief Guest on the occasion. Mrs Jyoti has been extremely supportive of all our efforts in empowering women and does a lot of voluntary social work herself.
Carry on Educating !
The above picture is of Mahmood Colony, Bhamanwala Village where a new batch of 9 girls was started on 10th Feb, while the picture below is from a slum called Johdi Majra where a new class was started on 15th Feb. It is so heartening to see women and girls lining up to study, unfortunately our limitations force us to limit the number of girls per batch.
Hello !
Dear Everyone,

February has been one of our busiest months ever. The cycle of teaching, testing and then passing out of students in our E@YD program was really hectic this month. However, the satisfaction it gives us more than compensates our hard work. Women who could not recognize a single alphabet, either in Hindi or English, now sign bank withdrawal forms and send emails.

The children at Saheli Home are huddled around books, with terminal exams approaching. Riya, one of the girls who finished her schooling, now plans to take up music in college.

Also, i would like to request everyone to please forward this email to your friends & relatives. The more people know about us, the better it is for us.

As always, my request to you, please do visit us at any time of your convenience. We would love to hear from you, simply reply to this email. Suggestions help us improve.

Regards,

Shruti Kaushik,
Secretary,
Saheli Trust
