What expansion plans are you looking for the next 2 years, next 5 years and in next 10 years?
When we come across people who had no confidence in their girls, we try to touch an emotional cord of people they respond to and educate to believe in their girl child.
The role of education is extremely important here and goes a long way in empowering women. The process of education has to begin early in life. The mindset that a girl is a liability needs to be changed and this requires happening at the grass root level.
“Daughters Are Blessings” foundation is on the path to change the mindset of girl child by educating them, help children find the right direction and pursue a life in positive ways.
Government can’t go to every corner of the country that’s when the social entrepreneur takes charge and we plan to reach as much as possible in next 2 to 5 years.
And in another 10 years, I see myself doing this good work to great heights under “Daughters are Blessings Foundation” Trust.
