Women-only Taxis to Revolutionize the Cab Scene in Jordan
- Women empowerment
- Lady taxi drivers
- Of the 800 applications sent from Jordan, the Shecab team had an opportunity to participate in the finals to attain funds worth $25,000.
- Members of the Shecab team received a $1,000 fund after the training programme concluded in October 2014.
To cut it short
To help women in their society, few Jordanian women submitted applications to the US embassy in Amman for an event titled ‘Women’s role in leadership’. It was then, that the concept of a ‘Shecab’ came into formation. Aimed to provide women a safe mode of transport along with increased job opportunities, the Shecab project has received positive encouragement from most of the citizens in Jordan. While the energetic women team is all set to implement their project, they seek government and Municipality’s support to execute their project at the earliest.
