Dear Friends,

Welcome to 2015.

Working for 33 years, the Share and Care Foundation believes that though women’s equality has made positive gains, it is still UNEQUAL. The wake of the Delhi rape incident has heightened our concern about gender issues, and the uphill battle of social and economic opportunities.

It demands our focused attention and sustained action that empowers women who are facing many forms of violence, including dowry deaths, domestic violence, forced labor, rape, and abuse. As we know, these problems are not due to lack of resources, but are due to lack of their voices being heard. This needs to be addressed by developing a voice and leadership.

We want your active participation in making 2015 the year of Inspiring Change

In order to accomplish our GOAL we appeal to all WOMEN—to come together, take responsibility, lead, and manage the project going nationwide. For this we are seeking 7–11 members to serve on the Inspiring Change Steering Committee: to plan, implement, and monitor the various campaigns and projects. We also will have an additional 11–15 members who will take on specific responsibilities toward awareness and marketing campaigns.

Kindly send your interest by email to Tejal Parekh.

Brace yourselves, because these are real people, real challenges, and real social issues. We want to enlighten our stakeholders and compassionate audience. If we can save even ONE woman from domestic violence, ONE woman from the claws of leukemia by finding a bone marrow donor, send ONE brilliant but needy student to IIT school, motivate even ONE brilliant girl of a prostitute mother to follow her dreams to pursue graduate studies . . . we will consider our mission accomplished and our partnership campaign a good investment.

We need a call for action to end domestic abuse as well as physical and emotional violence against women and young girls. Share and Care has worked very hard since its inception to combat violence against women, and to empower them to live with dignity. We have a number of programs, including skill training for livelihood. Now our goal is to help strengthen NGOs that are working to combat violence against women that will continue to make a strong tenet of our Signature Programs. We support building a secure future for women, with our limited resources.
