Join the movement of community change

Right now, your gift will go directly to support DiDi’s as we employ, empower, encourage and equip under a 100 community members across Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh in India. We do this to improve employment opportunities and to bring about financial and emotional stability for women. You could help create Community Change in two years – and transform the lives of millions in Uttar Pradesh.

Momentum is building across Lucknow city for a brighter future for girls and their communities. Hundreds of girls, like Sheela, are now able to dream of a life free from domestic / sexual violence and can strive towards a future filled with knowledge, choice, and opportunity. Many communities are making gender sensitivity a reality across Lucknow, given our efforts and out reach through our women.
The next couple years present a rare opportunity to transform the lives of a 1,000 women. With your help, we can:

  • Empower, Encourage and Equip a 1000 women in Lucknow city from underprivileged backgrounds
  • Greatly reduce Domestic Violence against women by empowering and equipping more and more women and girls.
  • Transform gender equality and financial independence for a generation of parents and children.

In short, we've taken our work and opportunities and created a citywide effort to transform a generation(make this a link) – here we will add a document with a plan to employ more women by our fundraising efforts.

But we need your help to do it.

The math is simple. Every $8(Rs. 500) monthly commitment we receive can cover the costs of reaching out to, employing and training a women/girl into our DiDi’s team. The candidate—most often a woman or adolescent girl like Sheela—will join our team and become skilled in either cooking, tailoring or driving – thus posing as an ambassadors for change, reaching hundreds of other women in Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh).
