SAKHI KENDRA AT A GLANCE
Sakhi kendra is a not-for-profit organization working in India for over 36 years, focusing on alleviating inequality and social injustice. We do this through well planned and comprehensive projects in health, education, livelihoods and good governance. Our overall goal is the empowerment of women and girls, especially from poor and marginalised or socially excluded communities leading to improvement in their lives and livelihoods.

HILLARY CLINTON - FORMER FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES
“I have heard and seen around the world, but I want to end with the story of just one Kanpur-based young girl, Kusum Singh, who was married at the age of 13 to an abusive illiterate husband. At the age of 15, she realised she had no future. She knew if she were to have any hope at all, she had to stand up for herself and Sakhi Kendra has encouraged her to become self-reliant and make an identity of her own. When selections for community health workers were held, she stood for selection and she won.”
