Secretary, Indian Dreams Foundation
I born and brought up in Agra, Uttar Pradesh (India). I had completed my Masters in Social work (MSW) from the Institute of Social Sciences, Dr B.R Ambedkar University.
I am a social activist and passionate about transforming the lives of the vulnerable group especially girls and women through the power of education and reproductive health awareness.
Since my school days, I was much concerned about the girls’ education and empowerment; I have interacted with many girls who belong to the vulnerable sections of society. The significant ratio of girls from marginalized communities has stripped of education, even at the primary level. These girls are victims of poverty, gender discrimination in different phases of their lives.
I believe that girls and women have equal rights to access quality education, excellent health services and security thus to achieve gender equality.
Currently, I much concern about the menstrual and sexual reproductive health of the adolescent girls and women. Two years ago, I started an initiative SMILEY DAYS for educating and empower adolescent girls on MHM with the support of my organisation (NGO) Indian Dreams Foundation (IDF). IDF works in the areas of education, health & hygiene and women’s empowerment through different programs and has consultative status in ECOSOC (United Nations).
We have a well-defined motto for our SMILEY DAYS – “Every girl has the right to smile and lead a healthy life”.
