SHARE YOUR HAPPINESS!
We believe that empowering women to the best selves will make the world a happier place. To that effect, we have partnered with the EPIC FOUNDATION to support the Apnalaya organization in Mumbai. With their help, we can reduce significantly female marginalization in the largest slum cluster in Mumbai’s East Ward.
