Azad is a non-profit professional feminist organization in India working across social and religious divides to enable resource-poor women to empower themselves. It does so by engaging them in viable non-traditional livelihoods. Azad is committed to breaking patriarchal boundaries and structures so that women can exercise control over their lives and live with dignity.
Since 2008, Azad has been providing transformative capacity building programmes around self and skills needed for non-traditional livelihood and engaging with both men and women in their communities to construct a safe and supportive space for their development. Its award-winning “Women on Wheels” programme enables women to access remunerative livelihood in professional driving and provides safe alternative transport options to women in selected cities in India.
