A social worker who has made a difference in the lives of millions of Indians, the late Mrs. Vipula Kadri was the founder of PRIDE INDIA, along with sister organisations SAVE THE CHILDREN INDIA (1988) and WISE (1992). Through these organisations, Mrs. Kadri spearheaded many projects in the western part of the country, mainly in Maharashtra, which gradually expanded over time to encompass other parts of the country. Up until her death in 2007, Mrs. Kadri worked tirelessly to bring relief to the poor and marginalized in our country. Whether it was underprivileged children, destitute women, or victims of natural disasters, she ensured that she did everything in her capacity to help these individuals lead more dignified lives. We here at PRIDE INDIA , feel proud to have been associated with as exemplary a woman as Mrs. Kadri, and are striving to carry on her legacy in the field of Social Development in India.
