Celebrate #UberWomen by Riding for A Cause

Today, March 8th is International Women’s Day!

In honor of all the amazing #UberWomen out there, we have partnered with the Chennai-based women’s mental health and rehabilitation NGO, The Banyan, to spread the love and support women that are less fortunate.

The Banyan helps in reaching out to women with mental illness and leading them to a fulfilled life beyond. We’re thrilled to make it easier than ever for you to support them this Women’s Day!

For each ride you take in Chennai from March 8th to 15th, Uber will donate 10% of the fare to The Banyan!

Follow these simple steps to get involved:

  • Open up your Uber app and request an UberBLACK ride.

  • Ride for a cause! For each ride you complete from March 8th to 15th, 2014, we will donate 10% of the fare to The Banyan.

The Banyan began in 1993 as a direct and heartfelt response to the visible gaps in care and attention for wandering women with mental health problems and their diverse projects have now changed the lives of over 5,000 people. Much of The Banyan’s work is rooted in promoting independent living through several creative pathways. In particular, The Banyan’s Community Living Project helps a client in rehabilitation and provides them with the ability choose their own future. The Banyan facilitates these choices through initiatives such as vocational training and by empowering them to get in to employment based on their personal choice.

This Women’s Day week, we’ll donate 10% of every ride you take on Uber to the Community Living Project in Kovalam.
