When asked what led her to work in this field, Safeena said, “India has a high number of attributes that discriminate against the girl child. Education is a key that can start to unlock the solutions to most of these problems. In the circumstances, it is absolutely necessary to ‘change mindsets’ and for that ‘a scalable solution’, that empowers communities to take ownership, was absolutely necessary!”
