Going beyond all the boundaries, restrictions and disrespect for women, there are still people in the country who are making an extra effort to uplift women of the country and helping them fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams.
Chennai, after special buses, railway coaches and colleges, will soon have women-only cyber cafes that will ensure secure accessibility to them. These are being planned by a startup focussed at women – EmpowHer, with an aim to create safe, comfortable and information-rich spaces for women.
This project will more strongly be dedicated to city suburbs including Tambaram or small towns like Kanchipuram, around 70 km from the city, as women in these cities avoid going to the cafes.
EmpowerHer had recently received a grant by the Omidyar Grant for Entrepreneurship in South Asia by Harvard University’s South Asia Institute.
