How a girl born in the Red Light district of Mumbai made it to University in New York
This is an inspiring story of how one young woman rose above the disadvantages of her surroundings through determination, education and support of a women’s group called Kranti.
Kranti (Revolution) empowers girls from Mumbai’s red-light areas (Revolutionaries)to become agents of social change. It shows us that we don’t have to be confined by the situation in which we find ourselves.
Shweta wants to study psychology so that she can help other young women defy the circumstances of their birth. She is due to start college this month.
