MASS has been working for the welfare of Dalit women, specifically ex-devadasi women and their children since 1997. The organisation runs multiple programs that provide a complete support system for the empowerment of these women, securing them a stable income and ensuring their children’s education. With a current membership of more than 3000 devadasi women in all, MASS is changing the lives of so many who once had no hope. Ms Sitavva Jodatti, the CEO of the foundation, who was once herself a victim of the oppressive devadasi system, is now a Padma Shri awardee.
MASS is now looking to raise an amount of INR 17,00,000. This amount will be utilised as shown below:
