The Challenges

The Statistics:

India has 22 of the world's 50 most polluted cities

1% Of the 2.4B tonnes of annual vehicular Co2 emissions comes from auto rickshaws

There are over 6 million auto rickshaws in India and over 12 million drivers

This causes congestion in the cities. This also means there are over 12 million families  dependent on the small income of the drivers.

These drivers are making less than 8$ a day

The loans available to drivers have high interest rates leading to these low profits.
