A U alum in India is CEO of a nonprofit group that works to assist some of that country’s most vulnerable populations.
The University is unifying and expanding its endeavors to bring international experiences to all students.
70% of women in India face some form of violence at home. This means, 70% of our country’s population is deprived of its basic human right to live with dignity.
Today, on Human Rights Day, let us pledge to end violence against women.
“For every #woman and #girl violently attacked, we reduce our humanity. For every woman forced into unprotected sex because men demand this, we destroy #dignity and pride. Every woman who has to sell her life for sex we condemn to a lifetime in prison. For every moment we remain silent, we conspire against our women. For every woman infected by HIV, we destroy a generation.” - Nelson Mandela

Help us build an old age home for 100 abandoned widows:http://goto.gg/14114
Many Elderly Women in India are outcast by their families upon the death of their husbands. They are abandoned to the streets, often with no food or shelter to survive. Maitri takes up their cause in bringing dignity and respect to their lives.
This holiday season, join us in empowering abandoned, destitute and elderly women by helping us build an old age home for them.

Maitri is building an old age home for 100 abandoned, destitute and elderly widows in Vrindavan. This Christmas season, Maitri needs your support to raise $30,000 from 30 individual donors on GlobalGiving in order to get a bonus award.

Our project will provide 100 aged women shelter within a supportive and comfortable environment. Through the provision of midday meals, health supplements, and enabling access to general and multi-specialty healthcare, these women will be able to lead healthier lives. In addition, the project will help increase their socio-economic independence by facilitating access to citizenship rights and opportunities for vocational training, skill enhancement and employment.

My Surviving Domestic Violence Story
My surviving domestic violence story is only one part of my life. A twelve year journey that taught me who I am at my core, strengthened my faith, and helped form the strong person I am today.
