Challenges Marginalised Children Face Each Day

If we don’t center the voices of the marginalized people, we are doing the wrong work.” - Tarana Burke


In the era of advanced technology and rapid national growth, a segment of our society remains in need of improvement and access to essential resources. While other children joyfully attend well-equipped schools, these children are deprived of basic resources.


Marginalised children face a harsh reality where their dreams are often shattered before they can even take flight. Denied quality education, they are trapped in a cycle of poverty and limited opportunities, their minds are filled by broken desks and outdated books instead of supportive teachers and engaging lessons.


What if you were in their shoes, with a desire to learn but no resources to support you? How would you feel?



Empowering marginalised children:


In the shadows, millions of marginalised girls endure a silent battle against abuse, exploitation, and societal pressures, their voices are silenced by a world that overlooks their struggles. But this is not their destiny, we can change the narrative with these initiatives:


  • Quality Education: Learn, Grow, Succeed.

  • Healthcare: Healthy Body, Healthy Mind.

  • Protection: Safe & Sound.

  • Policy Reforms: Fairness for All.

  • Economic Empowerment: Jobs & Opportunities.

  • Social Inclusion: Embrace diversity



Imagine a world where every child, no matter where he or she comes from, can chase his/her dreams.


The stories of strength and resilience — Our Unbreakable Shaktis:


Our proud Shaktis are no less than warriors,  they break down the barriers and shatter glass ceilings to reach the sky.



Born into a world of hardship, Neelam's life has been a relentless roller coaster with adversity. Her mother, the sole provider, shoulders the weight of the family's financial struggles, her hands worn from years of tireless work. Her father, absent from the picture, casts a shadow over their lives, leaving a void that Neelam longs to fill with her own success. Yet, her spirit remains unbroken. With each graceful step she takes, Neelam confronts the odds, her firm determination is the gift within her. In her heart, she carries the weight of her family's struggles, yet her smile never fades.




Ujala, our blooming star– her story shows that you can overcome any challenge with hard

work and never give up. Despite facing financial constraints and initial discouragement from her family, her love for dance was so strong that she secretly followed her dreams. Through hard work, dedication, and the support of her sister Gudiya, Ujala has not only excelled in her studies but has also become a gifted dancer, athlete, and artist. Her infectious energy and creative spirit continue to inspire those around her, proving that even the biggest challenges can be overcome with a smile and a determination to succeed.


Like these super talented Shaktis, our 330+ Marginalised girls face a lot of struggles in their lives, yet manage to wear a smile and stamp their feet on them with their achievements. 


Our pillars – Shakti Sadhana and Shakti Strong are the traditional learnings that teach them classical dance and yoga. Shakti Speak and Shakti Shiksha teach them English and essential computer skills. Along with these learnings, we want our girls to be physically strong too, and provide nutritious food and drink (Shakti Sanjeevani). By empowering these girls, we can help them chase their dreams and reach their full potential.
