Manjari Foundation, a registered non-profit organization established in May 2015, is committed to help women from marginalized communities overcome social injustice, poverty and exclusion. It supports rural women initiatives at grass-root level to facilitate empowerment. Manjari Foundation has come up with an effective and easily adaptable model which brings social and economic changes in adverse conditions.

Core Beliefs
• Women have potential which can be unleashed in conducive eco-system
• Collectives can be the driver of change and can lead to enhanced sense of agency at the individual level
• Community should be at the driver’s seat and set the agenda of change and take the lead
• Sensitive and empathetic professionals need to work directly at the grass-roots
• A long term engagement is needed to see sustained changes in the eco-system and the surroundings

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
