Breaking Barriers: Radha’s Journey of Empowerment with Asha

Radha, a resident of Dr Ambedkar Basti slum, lived a life confined by societal expectations. Veiled and confined indoors, she was never involved in any social affairs. Everything changed when Radha joined the Mahila Mandal formed at the slum by the Asha team. With each meeting, her courage grew, and she found her voice. Along with her fellow members, Radha started to approach the local authorities multiple times, advocating for improved living conditions in her slum—cleaner drains, reliable electricity, and access to clean water. Asha's support transformed her, empowering her to take charge. Radha's determination inspires women in her community. Remarkably, one of her daughters is now an Asha warrior, studying at Delhi University. Radha's story is a testament to Asha's transformative impact, empowering her to become a bold change agent.
