Transforming the life of the Women
Udayani runs many trainings and campaigns on pertinent social issues to generate awareness, and garner funds in an effort to overcome poverty and empower women. The campaigns are a platform for people to understand Udayani’s vision and mission, to build involvement among all stakeholders, and to highlight the importance of certain days.
