Currently training their 4th batch of students, Azad Foundation was set up by Meenu Vadera (Executive Director) in New Delhi, India, to train Indian women in driving services. Upon completion, these women work as personal drivers for a period of time before they upgrade their driving licences to commercial licences, allowing them to drive taxis. With this program, Azad aims to empower Indian women including those previously abused or trafficked, while making Delhi a safer place for women travelling in public transport.
