    Register Full Details

    How do we make independence and freedom of mobility accessible to all, allowing people with reduced mobility to move long distances freely?"We want to overcome the failures of infrastructure and public transport that are not suitable for people with reduced mobility and which prevent them from moving freely and independently to go to work, study, and be included in society." - Khadija JallouiliJoin the conversation on Zoom(Meeting details will be provided in the registration confirmation email.)Join our conversation with Khadija Jallouili, founder and CEO of HawKar, a socially innovative Tunisian startup.As a person with disabilities, Khadija had always struggled to be independent. She saw an opportunity to help solve the problems of public transportation and infrastructure in the Middle East / North African region, which are often not suitable for people with disabilities.HawKar is building a smart electric car that is directly accessible in a wheelchair, compact, economical, and environmentally friendly. This will enable people with reduced mobility to travel independently, whether to work, study, shop, or socialize.Their aim isn't to make a car fully autonomous but to develop a car with a simple assisted driving system because HawKar believes it is important for a person with reduced mobility to have control, feel independent, and be able to have a glimpse of an autonomous life experience by driving their own vehicle.
