Apne Aap Women's Collective News Letter Jan-Mar 2017

It is with vast delight that I present to you the quarterly e-newsletter of Apne Aap Women's Collective. I keep updating you with such quarterly newsletter since we are glad to be in touch with such amazing supporters. Here are some of our proudest moments from this period.

We were one of two organisations selected for the Gujarat charity bike ride 2017. For three days a bike ride of 350 km from Bhuj Mandir to Ahmadabad Mandir took place to bring awareness and raise money to our organization.

Further AAWC was rewarded the top ranked organization of 2016 by Global Giving. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to both Gujarat Charity Bike Ride and Global Giving for bringing attention to our work. AAWC also received Platinum Certification from Guide Star India, based on the level of transparency & public accountability, after rigorous due diligence carried out by Guide Star team of certification experts
for verifying financial and legal compliance.

In the history of AAWC, first time through Indian Radio Channel we had massive opportunity to spread awareness and decrease stigma and discrimination for the women and children who work and survive in the red right area. Red FM’s “Bajao for a Cause” is an annual program in which they choose 1 social issue and 1 organisation to support by appealing for pledges from the listeners. Red FM chose AAWC amongst many other organisations working in similar workspace and issue. The work of AAWC aired for an entire month of March, disseminating human trafficking, stories of our women and girl beneficiaries. To culminate the success of this 1 month journey RED FM invited few beneficiaries, AAWC Staff and few listeners who had also pledged
either monetarily or in kind for a fun party at their office. One part of their series of surprises was also taking our few girl beneficiaries to meet their dream icon –Bollywood Super Star – Shahrukh Khan. During his meet, he promised a full sponsored trip to Kidzania for all the children at AAWC. I humbly thank all the support that the Team of RED FM has provided and all the listeners.

An Honorary Ceremony for our Umeed beneficiaries who attended the beauty parlour training and have been placed in reputed salons in Mumbai was held. I was very glad to be invited to do the honouring of the women with giving them their certificates and a small gift. They shared their experiences of the training and enjoyed a good time.

Warm Regards,
Manju Vyas
