A MILLION WOMEN CAN DRIVE ON THE THE ROADS BY 2030
EQUALITY, EMPOWERMENT &
LIVELIHOODS WITH MOBILITY
Revving a motorbike or holding the handlebars doesn't just give women the ability to drive but also gives them much needed control over their lives! A revolutionary initiative, MOWO aims to empower women to be independent by offering them two and three wheeler training and thus opening up a world of possibilities for them.
The undervalued economic impact of women
in the mobility workforce needs to change.
MOWO's mission is to create a safe and reliable commute option 'For, and By Women' and in doing so, empower women to become self-reliant and confident.
STORIES OF CHANGE
Homemaker, Praveena learnt to ride after additional responsibilities fell upon her when her husband couldn't ride anymore.
Mowo helped me rediscover myself. I not only learnt to ride a bike but I also learnt how to drive a car. Mowo is my true knight in shining armour. I am a very different person now. Mowo changed my life in a beautiful way.
