Be a Part of the Roshni Rides Community!

The average refugee in Orangi Town spends 30% of their income on transportation. Our aim is to launch an e-rickshaw transportation system that could revolutionize the way people in settlements travel across the globe. With our superior price point and accessible service, Roshni Rides aims to create brighter lives, one ride at a time. In order to pilot this project however, we need your support! 

Our Business

Roshni Rides was inspired by Barkat Ali, a former refugee from Orangi Town. After speaking with him, we knew we needed to make a difference. As sons and daughters of Pakistani immigrants, this solution and these people are dear to our hearts. 

Roshni Rides is an innovative and affordable transportation solution that provides a safe and comfortable ride for residents of informal settlements. All of our rickshaws will run on renewable energy, creating a cleaner and more efficient transportation system. Each stop is strategically placed near schools, hospitals, and markets, maximizing the opportunity for our riders. 


Your Investment

$30,000 would give us enough money to turn our dream into a reality. This cost includes the cost of:

  • Rickshaws 
  • Solar panels
  • Batteries 
  • Salaries of drivers 
  • Printing Roshni Cards 
  • Storage
