Today, we mark our 10-year anniversary of My Choices Foundation. The first 10 years has been a fearless and passionate journey with a committed team – we are proud of our progress and humbled to have come so far since our humble beginnings in 2012. Over the years, our programmes evolved, our knowledge expanded, our team grew and reached millions of people.
It is by the courage of every woman that has gone before me and the courage to believe that we can create a safer India for its women and girls, that we have the joy of celebrating 10 years.
From 2012 to 2021, My Choices Foundation has empowered millions of children, women, families and communities to make transformative choices to live lives free from abuse, violence and sexual exploitation in ten states – Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan, Telangana and West Bengal – in more than 6,500 locations across the nation of India. It would not be possible without the support of our generous donors over the course of the last 10-years.
I am deeply grateful for the support, encouragement and wisdom. As we look onto the next 10-years we will continue to:
“Care more than other people think is wise
Risk more than some think is safe
Dream more than some think is practical
Expect more than some think is possible”
To achieve the impossible.
Take a journey with me and enjoy the momentous moments that collectively brought us to where we are today.
