I will also be using the conference as a platform to launch an anthem for breastfeeding. This anthem, which is currently only in the Tamil version, aims to give voice to breastfeeding mothers everywhere and is intended to be a timeless tribute to motherhood. It is also my sincere hope that one day, this anthem will be used at the national level, at all breastfeeding related events.
I have overcome many hurdles and obstacles in my preparations to host this conference and I have learnt the hard way that organizations and institutions in the private sector are not keen on supporting individuals, especially a woman, taking up a task of this magnitude.
All proceeds collected in the form of funds will be only be used for organizing and conducting the conference. A part of the registration money will be spent towards a good cause. I request all the philanthropists to come forward and support my initiative.
