Roshan Dilli - A Campaign To Light Up Public Spaces In Delhi And Make The City Safer For Women

Uber Helps This 31-Year-Old Woman Driver Achieve Her Dreams

A woman cab driver may raise some eyebrows, but 31-year-old Mannu loves being one. She has been driving strangers around the city in an Uber cab for two years now. The flexible working hours is what made her switch from her ten-year-long career in catering to become an Uber driver. She remembers her humble beginnings and how the financial freedom she has gained is now empowering her family. This is her story.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
