Women on Wheels

New Delhi, India

Critical Need

Traditional gender roles in India have created an uneven playing field for women when it comes to accessing education and employment opportunities. Our ground partners, Azad Foundation, work with disadvantaged women from resource-poor urban areas across India, to empower them to become professional commercial drivers. Azad’s signature program, Women on Wheels, provides technical, self-empowerment and self-development training to fully equip women to become self-sustaining professional drivers.

Our Involvement

Planeterra and G Adventures have provided funding for a third of Women on Wheels fleet vehicles, as well as funding and resources for the Women on Wheels training program. G Adventures was the first tour operator to contract Women on Wheels as our India airport pick-up partner, creating a sustainable and growing customer base for this emerging social enterprise.


• 92 drivers in placements
• 20 commercial drivers
• 15 fleet vehicles on the road
• 3000 G Adventures travellers picked up at the airport
