About Sammaan Foundation
There are about ten million cycle rickshaw pullers in India. Each puller, on an average, raises a family of five. That means about fifty million lives are dependent on income earned from cycle rickshaws. Such a large population is completely cut off from mainstream socio-financial spectrum. Our aim is to organize this entire sector and transform rickshaw pullers into an empowered and dignified workforce. In order to help this community grow holistically, we have initiated a sustainable livelihood model apart from other efforts in areas of poverty alleviation, financial inclusion, healthcare, and awareness creation.
