Angeli Kapoor Puri founded the Angel! Foundation to fight the cause of female foeticide and 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 partnership document was signed by Ms. Angeli Kapoor Puri, founder of The Angel! Foundation. Speaking on the occasion, Ms. Puri said, “For a woman to live life with dignity, economic empowerment is very crucial, especially to enable her to come out of domestic violence and to protest against other crimes, such as female foeticide and human trafficking.”
The Angel! Foundation has been creating awareness against female foeticide by organising street theatres in the urban slums of New Delhi.
Angeli Kapoor Puri has been promoting equal opportunities for education for the Girl Child and the empowerment of woman through financial independence.
Whilst working with underprivileged women & children in the urban slums Angeli Kapoor Puri Said :
“I found that the Girl Child was severely under nourished & neglected. Parents in the slums have limited resources hence they feed the boys & ignore the girls. It is sad to see that a Girl Child is still treated in this manner. There is nothing more satisfying for me than saving the life of a Girl Child. In most Indian homes girls are still considered a burden on family resources. Hence the girl is aborted or thrown away or killed after her birth.”
Angeli Kapoor Puri, The Founder of The Angel! Foundation received the GLOBAL INDIAN KARMAVEER PURASKAAR and NRI ACHIEVER AWARD for her outstanding work in social service.
