Transportation problems are one of the biggest challenges facing workers and employers in remote areas. We partnered with startup BlaBlaCar to co-create a ridesharing app, BlaBlaLines, to mobilize and empower a community in rural France. To date, we’ve helped drive 46,000 visits to the app.
Success Starts Here Men’s Job Seminar
Expanding on the success of our annual Women’s Job Seminar, in 2017 we launched a similar program to help men overcome barriers to employment. The program provides advice on professional skills like resume building, professional attire, and interviewing techniques, as well as practical resources to help recover drivers’ licenses and register children for childcare.
