Support My Campaign
Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023

South Asia Women Foundation India is approaching TMM for the first time to support their programme on women's economic recovery and resilience in a post COVID world. We all know how devastating the economic and social impacts of COVID have been. SAWF In is national women’s fund supporting grassroots initiatives led by women and gender non-binary people on the issues of realizing their constitutional right to equality and non-discrimination. Their fellowship programme for women and trans entrepreneurs working in remote geographies seeks donations to support 5 such (self-identifying) women entrepreneurs who are doing innovative, groundbreaking work in their communities and can amplify their results with training and mentorship support. The annual cost of supporting each fellow's training and mentorship programme is INR 50,000. This is what I am set out to raise through your support. Ideally they would like to raise INR 2.5 lakhs towards the mentorship and training support of these five entrepreneurial change leaders. Sanjeevani Life Beyond Cancer is my home. I started working with them eleven years ago when it was first registered. I highly ascribe to the vision of the founder - Ruby Ahluwalia, who is set out to change the journey of cancer patients (particularly women from marginalised spaces) in India across Prevention, Response/Treatment, and Rehabilitation/Healing. In 11 years, they have grown handholding centres in 18 cities in India. I'd like to see it in every city

About Me
Continuing my birthday ritual for a fourth time, I will be running the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2023 under Half Marathon category. As a trained and practicing social worker, I have the privilege of knowing some strong, highly impactful, and amazing individuals and organisations who are making strides in creating a more inclusive, and caring society, where humanity and dignity is a given, and not just a structural privilege. In line with giving myself huge targets that i then have to keep catching up with (:p) I am setting out to raise funds for two NGOs through this marathon 50K INR each. Both of these organisations are highly credible - I know their work and their team personally and know the contributions are going be well directed.
