Wheels for Women is a project started by Kathleen Mulligan and David Studwell after their visit to the Sakhi Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence in Kerala, India. Funds raised from the cabaret and raffle go towards the training and licensing of residents in auto rickshaw driving (like taxis in India)- offering these women a path to financial independence apart from their abusers. To date, Wheels for Women has purchased two brand new auto rickshaws for the shelter, and trained and licensed six residents as rickshaw drivers.
For further information, please contact Kathleen Mulligan, Assistant Professor of Voice and Speech at Ithaca College, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there!
