Gender Sensitization & Education
Gender sensitization is possible with the help of education, It is one basic requirement for the normal development of an individual. Education develops the leadership quality among women by self confidence and self esteem. Social awareness, Political awareness, health awareness can be better understood in the higher level with the help of higher education.

Menstural Hygiene & Management (MHM)
Menstruation is a naturally occurring physiological phenomenon in adolescent girls and pre-menopausal women. Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) is defined as ‘Women and adolescent girls using a clean menstrual management material to absorb or collect blood that can be changed in privacy as often as necessary for the duration of the menstruation period, using soap and water for washing the body as required, and having access to facilities to dispose of used menstrual management materials’. There’s accountablity that 23% of girls drop out of school when they start menstruating.
Our aim is to enable them and empower them. We organize awareness campaigns where women can learn the importance of menstrual hygiene and adopt sustainable menstrual practices, which they can then pass on to their daughters.
Stop Child Marriage
Child marriage negatively affects the Indian economy and can lead to an intergenerational cycle of poverty. Girls and boys married as children more likely lack the skills, knowledge and job prospects needed to lift their families out of poverty and contribute to their country's social and economic growth.
We are committed to sensitize and convince the masses about the negative impacts of child marriage through our awareness generation programs. Through our gender sensitization programs, we promote primary and secondary education for girls, because we believe in not just protecting women from these evils but to empower every girl and every woman for the future endeavours and to bring an effective change in the society.

I am not here to inaugurate this mega event or to deliver any speech. But I am here to join and support this revolutionary initiative and give honor to this cause. By providing any address no one can create awareness for women's safety to whom we consider "DEVI" If we keep an attitude of respect towards them, then only the crime against women can stop, and this attitude we all should inculcate among ourselves. It is not just a matter of the safety of women. It is all about the safety of humanity. I am thankful to the Ladli Foundation for making me a part of this revolutionary initiative and would congratulate the entire team for organizing this commendable marathon in association with Delhi Police.
