Rickshaws are like the taxis of Asia. For many low-caste people, being a rickshaw driver is the one opportunity they have to provide for their families. However, many have to rent a rickshaw every morning because they can’t afford their own. Up to half of their daily income can go toward renting this vital piece of equipment.
With their very own rickshaw, these hardworking people can keep all that they earn to help pay for their family’s basic necessities.
