Here’s what the folks at Aahan Tribal Development Foundation have to say about their project:
Udaan is a unique program for the leadership development of exceptional tribal girls and women of India who have not only survived some of the extreme challenges of life but are also helping other girls and women to live a life of dignity and self-respect. Aahan Foundation’s selection team is headed by the Founder & Director Dr. Rashmi Tiwari who handpicks such incredible change agents through a rigorous selection process.
These girls who are change agents in true sense are given invitation to a life-changing experiential journey of one week in Delhi during which they meet various political, social, business and spiritual leaders. These change agents are assisted with proper training, exposure and means to not only achieve their dreams but also help their fellow community members to lead a fulfilling life.
Udaan program empowers the participants who in turn empower others and thus it creates a strong multiplier effect on the development of members of tribal community; tribal women and girls in particular and other members of the tribal community in general.

Success Story 1- Biresh
Udaan participant Biresh- a pink auto driver from Jharkhand developed a sound 5 year roadmap for herself during the Udaan workshop taken by Dr. Rashmi Tiwari. She is now helping other tribal girls by assisting them in setting up their businesses. She has formed a support network of women by mobilising other pink auto drivers in the Ranchi city and is investing in buying shops to set the business up and running within next few months.
Success Story 2- Rupanti Munda
The girls who did not even have shoes and any access to nutrition supplement what so ever won the District level football championship. A big credit goes to the phenomenal motivation and guidance given by one of the team member and Udaan participant- Rupanti Munda.
