India to Australia on Bike - A Talk by Candida Louis
India to Australia on Bike by CANDIDA LOUIS
Why Travel?: Although there exist multiple channels to empower women including literacy, financial security, rights education, etc., I personally believe that travel and learning about multiple cultures, people and ideas through first-hand experience is the most powerful educational tool.
Why Me?: Hailing from a small town in India (Hubli) and having traveled extensively both within in India and internationally, I have experienced first-hand, the growth as a person and in confidence levels enabled by travel. And, I have realized that people and world at large is not as bad or dangerous as it is made to be on a daily basis. And, I want to spread this message as wide as possible.
Envisioned Societal Impact: Encourage women from semi-urban and rural parts of developing Asian countries discover themselves, gain confidence and grow both personally and professionally through travel experiences.
Objective: To impart the Educational and Empowerment virtues and benefits of travel to the women folk in semi-urban and rural areas in countries such as India, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Australia.
Why Women?: Women in this part of the world, especially in the non-urban areas are still considered and treated as the weaker gender and are dependent on men both socially and economically. Some of them who want to break this hold need to adequately educated.
