HEMLATA – EMPOWERING GIRLS WITH DIGNITY

Vision

HEMLATA believes that every human being – especially the most vulnerable – our girls – must have the right to live with dignity and purpose. Human Dignity should not be based on hierarchy, wealth, religion, race or place of birth.

Purpose

HEMLATA is an independent and neutral organisation, working to create impact within the socio-cultural context of the Indian environment. In India, years of hierarchal tradition have been responsible for passing on the advantage to the male child, over the female, resulting in an imbalance in the opportunities available to girls. The H100 initiative seeks to address this imbalance by empowering the next generation of female leaders.

Mission

To create real and sustainable impact through our H100 Initiative, by empowering talented girls, with scholarships to quality based tertiary college education, supported by a Mentor, Peer and Life Skills.

SUSTAINABILITY

As a social impact project, the HEMLATA 100 initiative upholds SDG #4 – Quality Education, one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals of 2030. Quality Education is also listed at #6 by Project Drawdown, a world class research organisation, offering solutions to save the future of our planet.

Approach

Every single scholar is identified personally by a HEMLATA Team member, on the ground, to ensure the integrity of the donation. We aim to directly impact beneficiaries by constantly refining the program and act as stewards of commitments, to both Donors and Donees.

Pledge

We pledge to be respectful, ethical and accountable, and to manage the funding and our projects with full transparency.
