Emotional Security is based on an integration of self-acceptance and self-confidence, social and political understanding and a personal ability to take a significant part in decision-making and in control over resources in the environment.

“As a Sarpanch I had not worked for the upliftment of the village however the Tanishka Foundation gave me a new identity. I received support from other women and could help women access social security schemes which benefitted them in Bhargaon block of Jalgaon. Today I am the Corporator in Jalgaon and thanks to Tanishka for making me a part of the impactful movement of social change.”
