Since 2007 we have:
35 Rickshaw distributed in 2022
So far we have distributed 385 Rickshaws
In 2023 we aim to distribute 100 Rickshaws
Rickshaw Project in Bangladesh
A rickshaw is a three-wheeled, non-motorized vehicle known for its cleanliness to the environment because it does not require any fuel. Dhaka’s rickshaws carry more passengers daily than the London Underground. Rickshaw drivers have to rent and pay the owner of the vehicle; they find it difficult to come out of the cycle of poverty due to the insufficient money they take home. Our Rickshaw project has been set up to help these men to own a vehicle. The money saved by owning their own Rickshaw can now be spent to provide food and education to help them sustain their family.
GYTF have so far provided more than 380 Rickshaws in the past year to many poor and needy drivers around Bangladesh. The cost of providing one rickshaw is £250.
We hope to guide families toward a successful path; by aiding 500 families in the slums of Bangladesh with 500 Rickshaws.
