“We are empowering women to take care of the next generation”
The winners of the 2019 “SDGs and Her” competition—Vandana Suri and Saida Yusupova—received their awards during the Spring Meetings.
Ms. Suri’s company, TaxShe, trains underprivileged women in India to serve as drivers for other women and children, improving their education and economic prospects, while helping prevent sexual abuse of passengers. “We are empowering women to take care of the next generation,” said Suri.
Yusupova established Green Business Innovation, a company in Uzbekistan that links the SDGs with green business opportunities and provides services in the areas of climate change, green technologies, sustainable energy, and renewables.
