It was in 2006, Rubina Mazhar shut her travel industry training facility to start Safa. A Hyderabad-based social services organisation, now running across India in cities like Chennai, Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi, that has been working with the belief that socio-economic empowerment of women begins with income generation and education; also, supports them in the education of their children through an area-based community mode. In result, this initiative has helped thousands of women in the city, become agents of change in their communities and inspire others by livelihood trainings such as tailoring and embroidery skills.
Not just that, they have also stepped forward to raise money to provide basic necessities for daily wage workers during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Even, Sania Mirza shared a video supporting the cause. But how is it working? First, they are getting supplies from wholesalers at a cheaper rate. Second, each city has a city chapter consisting of local volunteers led by one of the members of Safa. Then each city has a purchasing committee, who is in charge of getting the items from a vendor. Followed by the members connecting with local NGOs and the ground delivery partners. Then, delivering it to those helpless and homeless humans after necessary training and briefing to the volunteers.
So, if you want to be a part of it in any way, reach out to them on the given number.
