In 2018, we were approached by UNICEF to take “Barabari ki Dagar Surakshit Safar“ to all 21 districts of Haryana. The programme begins its implementation in June 2019. Over a period of 6 months approximately 13000 drivers and conductors of Haryana Roadways would undergo training on gender sensitive professional behaviors and stress management. India Oil Corporation (IOC) is supporting the initiative under its CSR initiative in collaboration with Haryana Roadways Engineering Corporation (HREC) and State Transport Department, Haryana and Manas is the technical implementing partner.
Safe Gaadi Is a mobile app which has been explicitly developed for drivers which they download post training on their smart phones. The app comprises of learning material on gender, violence against women, laws pertaining to violence against, latest updates on programme activities like scholarship for their daughters, important days and celebrations on various social issues, drivers’ stories of positive change and actions etc. To ensure sustained use and interest of drivers for the app, learning material is in the form of incentive based games and quiz with extensive use of audio-video tools. The app is available on App store for androids and iPhone and can be downloaded here.
