In the city of Ahmedabad, over 30,000 people provide for their families by pulling pedal-rickshaws. Two disturbing facts we found in our survey:
Dreams Foundation is distributing modified and good-quality pedal-rickshaws to deserving people. The beneficiary will pay the same Rs.30- Rs.40 a day initially. In less than one year, he/she will own the vehicle.
Vandana Agarwal of Dreams Foundation who has seen personally the joy of the dreamers on receiving a pedal rickshaw, knows the value it is to them. “This is truly their dreams. It’s their Mercedes” explains Vandana.
Dreams foundation has just been able to sponsor and distribute a number of rickshaws, benefiting 68 families! We hope to give 500 pedal-rickshaws within the next two or three years. A gift that will change the life of many hardworking and needy families instantly.
