For CSR Foundations
With a mission to train and employ 10,000 women by 2018, Hey Deedee® is the first all-women parcel delivery service, founded by Revathi Roy in March 2016. All these women belong to families which are below the poverty line that earn only Rs 1 lakh, annually. Helping the women own a scooter worth Rs 60,000 through soft loans, training them and employing them, doubles the whole family’s yearly income and removes the unfortunate ‘below poverty line’ stigma.
With this mission, we are looking for funding for training the women in two-wheeler riding through our curated 45-day training curriculum.
Currently, the registration fees, training fees and funding requirements are as follows:
Total training fees per girl: Rs 11,500
Fees paid per girl: Rs 1,500
Balance fees per girl that requires funding: Rs 10,000
