Sakshi Selected as GoI Universal ID Organizer


Sakshi Universal ID BoothThe Sakshi Gender Resource Centre was designated as the issuer of the new GoI Universal-ID: Smart Card (AADHAR Number), in the slums it covers.

 
It is very important for residents that they enroll. From the GoI Website: Aadhar is an ID "linked to the resident's demographic and biometric information, which they can use to identify themselves anywhere in India, and to access a host of benefits and services." Sakshi is building awareness and enrolling residents who being uneducated would not have known about this otherwise.
Sakshi selected as Government of Delhi's Mission Convergence Partner


The Government has hundreds of programs for the upliftment of the poor and marginalized esp. women which have been only marginally effective because of poor delivery mechanism. To address this, the Govt's recent Mission Convergence mega-initiative seeks to leverage the strength of the best grassroots NGOs.

Sakshi was selected as the MC partner in areas it operates in and is now responsible for building awareness and filtering government programs to the needy. Learn More

Melanie Verveer, US Global Ambassador for Women/s Issues, Visits Sakshi Library ProgramSakshi was honored to host Ms. Melanne Verveer, US Global Ambassador for Women's Issues and member of the contingent of US Secretary of State Ms. Hillary Clinton on her India visit.

Ms. Verveer heard the children read, recite and sing with great delight. The children were equally happy to display their talents before such an appreciative audience. Ms. Verveer appreciated the work Sakshi was doing in the Library Program where we build libraries in slum schools and the Girls Education Project where we support needy girls with financial assistance and educational coaching till they graduate.

The children were inspired by the Ambassador's achievements and the Ambassador was inspired by the difficulties the children had overcome and their dedication to make something of themselves. It was a productive and fun-filled day on both sides. Photo Gallery
