Joy of Giving Week at Aangan
Joy of Giving week is meant to embody the spirit of the Gandhi Jayatri by encouraging acts of giving. This fundraising challenge offers a special opportunity to raise funds by making us eligible for matching grants every week. Our goal is to raise funds for 600 girls to live a safer, happier life than they ever dreamed possible. This amount might seem small, but for these girls, it’s a life-changing opportunity.
to a peer network -where together the group devises strategies to address, challenges, atrocities and exploitation that girls struggle with everyday. These are basic essentials that ensure girls are educated, healthy, safe, and protected.
These girls have big dreams. They aspire to be teachers, doctors, actresses, and mothers. They don't want to ask for help- they want to help themselves. In Patna, 13 girls were able to breakopen the bureautic system to gain access to water for 25,000 individuals in their community- as well as ensure that they got themselves back into school to finish their education. 13 girls were able to use their voices to inspire change in their communities, and themselves. Aangan works in the most vulnerable communities- Orissa, Bihar, MP, UP- and provides assistance where many girls are not even allowed outside the home, victims of child marriage, or trafficked.
