Results so far

Starting 2018, Shraddha Maanu has connected with 130+ female graduates in both rural and urban areas, and got them started on their teaching journeys.

These women faced diverse obstacles with their careers - lack of structural and emotional support, limited access to training, or lack of awareness or confidence. Now, they form a tightly-knit community at Upasana, and empower themselves and their primary-school students.
