'Ek Pahal' is about making women self-reliant and empowered by teaching them the crucial skill of two-wheeler riding. This initiative has been undertaken by Hero MotoCorp Ltd., in partnership with theGovernment of Haryana, and United Nations Development Programs (UNDP) and it aims to teach two-wheeler riding to girls studying in the 12 Women Industrial Training Institute ( ITIs) based in Haryana. The training will be free of cost and it will be conducted in the two-wheeler riding centers being setup inside the institutes.
The program will have 20 Hrs of theory and minimum 40 Hrs of practical training spread over a month. During the training, we will also be having bicycles for those girls who do not know cycling to help them learn proper balancing techniques before they start the two-wheeler training program.
