Dathive, the motorcycle taxi driver

A motorcycle taxi driver who overcame gender stereotypes to support her family | Kampala, Uganda

"I did not know that I was able to work so hard."

Known as “Señorita” to her regular customers, Dathive is one of only two female motorcycle taxi drivers on Uganda’s SafeBoda ride-hailing platform. The flexibility of the platform work suits her, especially as a mother of four. While COVID-19 has brought several challenges, Dathive continues to draw on her inner resilience to stay focused on the future.
