Women On Wheels is a programme that trains women to take on the road and relieve them of transport issues
The programme, which was initiated by the Salman Sufi Foundation, plans to ensure that 10,000 can independently fulfill their transport needs by International Day For Women in March.
“This is a project to empower women which was the dream of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto,” said Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, who will be present at the inauguration of the programme along with Aseefa Bhutto Zardari. The ceremony will take place at Frere Hall on November 24.
