Partners about us"LGT Venture Philanthropy is proud to be associated with Aangan and its continued efforts to improving the lives of children both in high-risk communities and in state-run institutions."

"We support Aangan because they have demonstrated a strong understanding of the different developmental needs of both adolescent boys as well as adolescent girls, while also remaining committed to breaking down gender inequalities."

"When Aangan approached us with Project Shakti, it was just a plan and yet to demonstrate success. We believed strongly in the idea (which is radical as it places adolescent girls in high-risk communities at the very centre of their empowerment), in Aangan's committed and professional leadership and the impact Shakti would have on the community, particularly on girls. Through Project Shakti, Aangan has over the last two years enabled and created a safe space to help adolescent girls find individual and collective strength and has sparked in them the ability to negotiate with those in their environment. What is striking about the programme is the alumni network of young adolescent girls who are emerging as leaders within their communities. Aangan has also successfully demonstrated that spectrum-wide partnerships with state governments, institutional homes, funders, communities and most importantly young people themselves can result in better governance of homes and support to young people in conflict with law."
