SPAN MAGAZINE ARTICLE -SHAKTI VAHINI

SPAN ARTICLE IN SPAN MAGAZINE

Three Indian brothers received the Vital Voices Global Leadership Award from U.S. Vice President Joe Biden in March (right). Ravi, Rishi and Nishi Kant, who started the nongovernmental organization Shakti Vahini to fight violence and injustice against women and children in 2001, won the “Solidarity Award” at an event at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Over the past decade, Shakti Vahini has rescued more than 2,000 people, 70 percent of whom were children. Vital Voices, which was started by former first lady and secretary of state Hillary Clinton in 1997, also holds Shakti Vahini as a model NGO, “one that addresses legal, advocacy and rescue missions simultaneously,” says the Washington Post.
