Population of persons with disabilities in Pakistan is more than the entire population of Karachi or 3 times the strength of the New York City. Majority of persons with disabilities remain under the vicious circle of poverty due to mobility barriers and negligible job opportunities.
The hand-controlled functionality of this Food Cart Rickshaw and Motorcycle remove the mobility barrier by allowing a person with lower-limb impairments to come out of his/her home. Additionally, the cart attached with these vehicles allow a person with disabilities to initiate his/her own business.
Under our initiative, Plan Tabeer, we plan to pilot the project with 3 rickshaws and 5 motorcycles - thus creating job opportunities for 8 persons with disabilities. Funds will be used to:
Buy 3 rickshaw & 5 motorcycles and make it hand-controlled
