Dialogue for Social Equity - Fundraiser
These challenges may intensify further for Amrita due to the possibility of:
Early drop-out of school due to lack of WASH/sanitary facilities.
Low self-esteem and lack of female role models in the community to look up to
children like Varun and Amrita are dependent on India’s public education system to uproot them from a life of poverty towards opportunities and a fair chance against inequity to “Thrive”
A Bridge to Equity - Collective Action
Collective Action is imperative amongst Government entities, Civil Society Organisations, and Philanthropic Initiatives given the scale of the challenge.
A holistic and collaborative approach is our best bet to
Solve for scale instead of sporadic action,
Ensure speed of implementing various solutions at all levels
Root for sustainability by localising the solutions
It is vital that there is dialogue amongst the influential and the vulnerable!
There needs to be spaces for dialogue to enable intersectional awareness of on-ground reality.
Mantra4Change, in partnership with REACH India Collective, is hosting a platform in the USA to begin a conversation.
About the Dialogue - Bridge to Social Equity

Cause - To raise awareness in their community about social inequity and its impact on children from most vulnerable communities
Capital - To carry out periodic outreach and pool capital resources and opportunities for the cause in the US
Capacity - To help us strengthen our network capacity and widen our reach in the US.
The dialogue is part of a fundraiser gala to be hosted in:
