Our Campaign Story

ends 14 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

My name is Shreya Jha. I am a 17-year-old Indian American senior at Singapore American School. Over the last several years, I have been involved in protecting and preserving a dying art form called Madhubani art. This beautiful art form has been around for centuries but unfortunately has been dying out as most of the artists are poor women unable to sustain this as their livelihood, especially during this pandemic. I have also participated in fundraisers for AWARE and the purpose of this campaign is to raise money to give back to our local community here in Singapore which have given me so many opportunities.

I am currently writing a book on Madhubani art under publication. 100% of the proceeds for this book will go towards AWARE. Please contribute any amount possible, and for every donation greater than $25, a copy of my book "Daughters of Madhubani" will be included as per request.

Thank you for your support and encouragement!

About The Charity

The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.

In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.

The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.

AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
