Mishwar Company launched its first training courses, to teach women driving cars, last week, within an initiative launched by the company last month under the name “Women Can Drive”. It aims to provide driving lessons for women and give them the chance to join the company’s Eve Department, which offers transportation services by female drivers.
The company said in a statement that it targets training and recruitment of 10,000 women across the country this year. Mishwar said that it started working from New Cairo, in preparation of expanding to the rest of Greater Cairo and then later to different governorates across Egypt soon. The company has already started providing its service to customers, parallel to the training process.
Mishwar is the first Egyptian joint stock company which provides a transportation network through a mobile application. The company offers its services to ladies and families through its Eve Department, which is made up of female drivers.
