VOICE4Girls - 2018

 "The life of a grassroots organization is full of immediate struggles; funds, human resources, community benefit etc. It is moments like these, when our work is appreciated, that we realize the immense impact that we have on communities. So we thank Spirit of Humanity and Americares for creating a platform for recognizing our work.

The platform allowed us to interact with other social impact organizations, thereby building a stronger network. The award money received was directed towards our flagship program Her VOICE, and has helped improve the lives of marginalized adolescent girls in the district of Mahbubnagar, Telangana. Americares and Sprit of Humanity’s recognition of our work has only strengthened our fervor and passion towards empowering the adolescent girl, so that they are able to take charge of their lives and overcome the cycle of socio-economic and gender inequality."
