On behalf of ApneAap Women’s Collective (AAWC), I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for supporting us.
Without your concern for the underprivileged, we could not provide key activities like education, empowerment, health, and shelter, and recreation, all of which help to break the intergenerational cycle of prostitution among young children in Kamathipura.
I am proud to share that AAWC has received increasing recognition of our work on a national and international scale. This growing awareness of AAWC comes at a significant time for our organisation, as we have recently achieved a number of operational milestones, including celebrating our 16th anniversary.
We recently acquired a newer and larger private facility and increased our full-time staff by more than 40%. I would like to share with you the inspiring achievements of our members.
Our toddlers have continued to shine in the classroom at both public and private schools, with higher performance in academics and social behavior than their classmates.
Our girls achieved a 99% pass rate on school exams, a 100% pass rate on board exams, and a 100% transition among 12th standard gradates to university. From our first vocational program woman beneficiary graduate left prostitution permanently to become a tailor.
At this time, I kindly request you to read through our information pack, annual report of achievements and activities report across Udaan (girls ages 6-18), in addition with Umeed (women in prostitution) to identify with the array of the services provided.
As we expand our programs in 2015-2016, our budgets are Rs.32.5 lakhs (Umang), Rs.36 lakhs (Udaan), and Rs.26 lakhs (Umeed). Your support of $1500 towards the Udaan program (as you intended in your letter) would be most appreciated. With your continued generosity, we hope to empower more girls pursue new possibilities for themselves and their families.
For your reference we are attaching here with our (1) Organization Information Pack (2) Annual Report 2014 (3) Oct’14 to Jan’15 Activities Report. I look forward to hear from you if need any further information.
