The Angel! Foundation was initially founded in India in 2008 to fight the cause of female feticide and other crimes against women. A letter of intent was signed with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Regional Office for South Asia (ROSA), in New Delhi on August 28th, 2008. The Charity was started as a family trust with personal funds to empower the Girl Child in India.
The Angel! Foundation was launched in London in 2010 to generate awareness within the South Asian Community. It now has a significant presence as an established charity in New Delhi and London.
OUR AIM IS TO FOSTER A NEW GENERATION OF EMPOWERED WOMEN WHO CAN REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL
From female feticide to limiting healthcare and education in favor of male siblings, to bride burning, unreported rapes and acid attacks, inequality in India exists from womb to womanhood.
The Angel! Foundation strives to work and redress the balance for women who are treated as second class citizens throughout their life from female foeticide to limiting healthcare and education in favour of male siblings, to bride burnings to unreported rapes and acid attacks.
The Angel! Foundation is working against the inequality that exists in India right from womb to womanhood.
