Servant Project for Asia team members have distributed rickshaws to provide a sustainable means of livelihood generation for struggling families in poor communities of Pakistan. Many rickshaw drivers are finding it difficult to come out of the cycle of poverty as they are not able to take their full earnings home because they don’t own their Rickshaw and have to pay high rent for it. Our Rickshaw project has been set up to help Christian Rickshaw drivers to earn a daily income. As they drive passengers they can share the good news of Jesus. Plus, the money saved by them can now be spent to provide food and education to help sustain their family.
Getting access to some areas of the world can be a huge challenge. Providing practical help to people in need answers the call of the Gospel while building deep relationships inside the community. Rickshaw drivers are actively involved in the daily life of the community, providing a platform to spread love.
Rickshaw drivers are able to create income for their families, helping to create a sustainable future for themselves.
Rickshaws are a common form of transportation in many impoverished areas of the world. This project could be replicated in other countries.
