Strength India is a multi-national advocacy group designing high-impact, data-driven solutions to solve real problems for women in India…we are one-of-a-kind.
Strength India boldly places crucial female leadership in the middle of some of the most at-risk communities in the world.
We seek potential, regardless of access. We believe a woman’s power comes from her ability to ignite a fire in the women around her, creating collective leadership better livelihoods. We look for perseverance and determination above poise and demureness. We don’t care if you were right, we want to know what you learned. We have less patience for a discussion about your mark sheets than we do about your journal entries. We care if you’ve read Harry Potter, not your GK book(as long as you’re passing the class). We just aren’t as interested in the PM of 1982 as we are in your latest opinions of Hermione, and whether you thought her character was done justice in the films. Not sure what we’re talking about? We’ll show you the movie…but you have to read the book first. We’ll get you a copy in Hindi. Or Malayalam. Or Telugu. Or Marathi. Or Gujarati. Or Bengali. Or Tamil. Or English.
We’re different, we know it,
and we like it that way.
Currently, Strength India engages girls from violent backgrounds through Active Spaces–our after-school mentorship program to develop Social and Emotional Learning– and conducts on-the-ground research to understand women’s barriers to access menstrual hygiene products as a prequel to the upcoming (em)Power Pads initiative.
