MaitriManthan has been recognised as the best NGO in India - our projects help to improve access to healthcare and education, and they also empower women and young children.
Monika is a motivated 24 year old lady who has shown compassion towards children and women within rural India since a young age, especially those affected by India’s caste system. Whilst working as a Relationships Manager within the share-market, she contributed her free-time as a motivational speaker for education and women’s empowerment. In 2013, she decided to resign from formal employment and create this NGO. This allowed her to fully commit towards improving and empowering the currently disadvantaged lives of many within Indian society.
“Before creating the NGO in December 2013, I was travelling to villages surrounding Udaipur to provide free education lessons for children, and lecturing parents on the importance of education. I genuinely care about these children and even provided for their medical needs. I am a caring, energetic, hard-working person who always strives for perfection. This NGO reflects my passion for raising awareness and helping those in need. Spreading happiness around villages and seeing the joy on people’s faces is priceless”
