Animedh Charitable Trust
We are a non-profit organization based in Mumbai, India. Our goal is to provide financial support and social services to vulnerable women and children at an individual, community, and national levels. There is a huge void in both these areas in a big country like ours with a 1.2 Billion population, almost 30% of which is poor (Population below the poverty line in India live on 1.25$ a day - Census report 2011).
Through our programming, we:
- empower less privileged women in order to transform their lives. ACT works on projects to impart life skills, provide vocational training, and facilitate earning opportunities.
- promote basic and higher education for underprivileged children, especially the girl-child.
Our vocational training programs upskill women in tailoring, garment construction, beautician, and catering to become self-sustaining income earners.
At the time of writing, we've supported:
- 1655 women in skills training courses
- 912 in personal development
- 650 career launch kits
