• Reena A., M.A. Women’s Studies, RCWS, SNDT – “Working at Vacha was fun, besides also  being a great learning experience. That made coming to work something I had look forward to, everyday. The creative space provided for contributing with my own talents and explore new ones, the patience shown when I had take a bit longer to complete a new task, and a significantly egalitarian environment made my whole internship experience an enriching, fulfilling and worthwhile one. “

  • Jasmine Bhatia, PG Diploma in Communication for Development, Xavier’s Institute for   Communications- “During our course of internship at EdelGive Foundation Ishani and I were introduced to Vacha. Even though our interaction and association was brief, it was completely worthwhile. As volunteers we recorded a few interviews while interacting with young girls at Vacha, visited a few sessions and conducted two workshops at municipal schools. Our best experience was conducting the creative writing workshop with tenth standard girls at Tata compound school. Ever since its inception, Vacha has been empowering girls by helping them realise their rights. The main purpose behind the creative writing workshop was to help the girls realise their freedom and right to expression. It was a great opportunity for both of us. Nischint ma’am allowed us to plan the activities and execute them on our own. She helped us to frame them properly and also helped us execute them properly. We were lucky to have a batch with was enthusiastic and receptive. All the girls actively participated in the activities like mind mapping, recitation, rhyme the lines and paragraph writing. While the girls were happy to explore budding poets and writers in themselves, we were able get a glimpse of the world they belong too. Their writings suggested a complete opposite world full of freedom and aspirations. We were happy to be able to contribute to their lives by giving them a chance to express their views and opinions.

    The workshop ended with an interactive feedback session and some snacks. The love and affection with which we were seen off by the girls was overwhelming. We are thankful to Vacha for giving us this opportunity. We feel happy and proud to be associated with an organisation and wish to get more opportunities like these.”

  • Juhi – “If it wasn’t for the English Grammar that I learnt  at Vacha , I would have never learnt this language. The basic computer course completed in Vacha and the certificate of completion gave me a headway in  securing a job.”


  • Supriya – “I  never used to have any voice of my own, I was always a silent and timid person. After joining Vacha youth group, I have gained courage to  speak in front of thousands and have enthused many more girls to follow my path.”
