Give Meaning to Your Commute—Ride for a Cause

We know that Uber Chennai riders are passionate about giving back to their communities and supporting worthy causes. So this week, we have teamed up with MRT1’s Keep them in School initiative, to contribute towards their efforts in providing clean drinking water, sanitation facilities, separate toilets for girls and hygiene education in Chennai government schools. This initiative will have a profound impact on the health of the children, improving their ability to learn, reducing drop out rates and impacting overall schooling environment.

“One in every three girls do not finish school.”- The WASH initiative

“I have noticed that girls drop out of schools by the time they reach class 3rd or 4th because schools don’t have separate toilets for them. They don’t feel comfortable. There should be separate toilets for boys and girls in all schools. We should concentrate on girl students not quitting school.” – Prime Minister Narendra Modi

For each ride you take in Chennai from March 30th to April 5th  with Promo Code UBERMRT1, Uber will donate 10%  of the fare towards MRT1’s ‘Keep them in School Initative’!

Follow these simple steps to get involved:

  • Download & register with Uber
