Violence against women and children is the most pervasive violations of human rights in the world, one of the least prosecuted crimes, and one of the greatest threats to lasting peace and development. B.PAC has realized the need to address this grave issue and has launched a safety initiative for women and children under the banner of B. SAFE.
B.PAC has been collaborating with the government, women commuters and auto drivers to understand the issues of safety in public transport. As part of our B.SAFE initiative B.PAC proposes the “Gulabi Auto” Scheme. Its objectives
would be to promote safety in public spaces and create greater women’s empowerment. This would be one of the several steps we need to take for instilling faith in every woman that Bangalore stands united and strong to ensure her safety.
The Gulabi Auto Proposal is currently under active discussion in the Department of Transport, Govt. of Karnataka.
