Story

Transformative Actions For Reformed Attitudes (TARA) Foundation is a non-profit that brings forth discussions on Gender and sex education in daily interactions. We do so by conducting workshops, developing curricula and providing sustainable support structures to the community. Our areas of operation include urban/ rural Delhi, Haryana, and Madhya Pradesh.

This community comprises adolescents, rural women and youth, and professionals. Over the years, TARA is proud to have been the elder sister to 600+ adolescents across 18+ schools, a guide to several work-spaces, and a friend to several women across spaces.
 
As TARA expands to newer geographies, our aim is to reach out to more people and build a gender inclusive society. The funds gathered through for this cause will be utilized to:

a. Conduct 15 workshops for women from marginalized rural communities to inspire them to enter the field of science
b. Conduct 12 workshops for government school children and their parents towards dealing with Adolescent, Gender and Sex education
c. Conduct 8 corporate workshops for organizations to initiate conversations around equitable opportunities and respectful treatment of all genders at workplaces.

A couple of testimonials from our clients is as follows:

""Aapko idea bhi nai hai ki aap kitne saari ladkiyon ka support ho, humko ek dusre ko support karne ko batate ho, but you're like an elder sister who teaches us to have a voice"
- Smita (BNA-CLAT 2019)

"The feedback from the kids was really good. They became more sensitized towards how to use the Gender knowledge in their own lives, for eg: it started from writing letters to their mothers and appreciating their work to applying the same knowledge in their Social Studies classrooms. The critical understanding of Gender I feel through 4-5 sessions Kavya facilitated has increased Meaningfully. So, academically I am seeing little difference in my kids' approach and even in their practical life. Also, the kids were really interested in the topic."
- Shruti Mishra, Teach For India Fellow ('20)
