ANEW decided to reach out to beneficiaries, who have the aptitude and dream to take control of their lives by staying behind the wheels, by introducing a ‘non-traditional’ course in driving in the year 2003. The course is open to students who have at least a middle school education and who are willing to take-up employment as drivers. To begin with, ANEW started by training women in auto-driving and later moved on to car-driving in the year 2006. ANEW first helps enrol the interested candidate in an accredited driving school and advances the money needed to get the driving licence. Subsequently, ANEW’s car and trainer gives them the on-the-road experience & practice needed to improve their confidence in driving. ANEW also gets them further hands on training at various places, like Savera Hotel, Chennai, to handle a variety of vehicles. All trainees get Soft Skills and Basic English training and are also certified by AASI. On completion of the training, the candidates find placements as chauffeurs, valets, cab drivers etc.
