the organization has been supporting and helping South Asian for well over a decade. The number of women who have been assisted through stressful and violent home situations back into productive employed condition are too many to count. The ESL classes, avenues for health enrollment for families that this organization has provided to bribg marginalized south asian familes back into the fold is impressive. I hope the support for this will grow!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exemplary and hardworking.

As a volunteer with Pragati since 1993, I have experienced how a woman's life has changed after she received education, information and direct services that empowered her. Over the years Pragati has continued to serve women and families and has reached over 7,000 families in the NY Metropolitan region.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

1) how I have been emmpowered over and over through my personal experiences with women. 2) how women have blossomed and grown after attaining economic independence, confidence and freedom from challenging situations.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

1) seeing lives change for the better. 2) watching women develop into leaders & role-models. 3) finding strenght in self-identity as a South Asian woman 4) sharing our cultural traditions & values in this rich fabric of America's diversity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always gracious, helpful, caring, informed, willing to serve others, went the extra mile to get resources for individuals & families, worked under pressure & always met & exceeded performance targets, very well-respected in their community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach a 1,000 women in need each year for next 20 years and change their lives through education, empowerment & positive growth towards economic independence.
