The National Incubation Center (NIC) recently organized an entrepreneurship bootcamp for people with disabilities called ‘Unheard Voices’. To show their support to the cause, the ride hailing giant Uber collaborated with NIC.
Under the partnership, the participants of the bootcamp were able to avail discounts by using special promo codes on their Uber rides to NIC. The partnership with NIC shows Uber’s resolve to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset within their operating communities and the physically challenged youth.
Statistics show that there are more than 27 million physically challenged people in Pakistan. Therefore, programs such as ‘Unheard Voices’ allow the physically disabled to bring visible changes in their lives by being in control of their destiny and not rely at the hands of others through charity.
For years, Uber has been playing an integral role in promoting innovation across its operating countries. The ride hailing app had also organized an UberPITCH, a competition that sets entrepreneurs on the road to opportunity by providing them with training, mentorship and resources.
