Archana Srivastava’s window to happiness

Main choo sakti hun akash, mauke ki mujhe hai talash
I am Archana Srivastava, founder of Gavaksh, a spirited entrepreneur and a social worker at heart. Just like many other girls in our society, during the early age of my life, I too faced a lot of restrictions and constraints when I first stepped out of the safety of my home. My immediate family and extended family had their own set of reservations about the sort of project I was planning to undertake. They were worried about my safety, what people would say and whether it would be enough to bring home bread and butter. Today, I am running my own NGO near ITO, New Delhi.  Every day brings in a new set of challenges and lessons.

“I know I am on the right path. I am doing what I am meant to do. My mind is clear about the vision I need to pursue. I am happy with the way things are shaping up for GavaKsh.”

The most defining and magical moment for me so far has been the birth of my dream project “GavaKsh – window to happiness”.   This was born on 31st December 2014. This project is an attempt to bring happiness into the lives of children coming from under privileged section of our society. I discovered that the cause of working towards social development of underprivileged children pulls all the right heartstrings for me.

GavaKash aims to reach out to the children with lesser means to provide them with meaningful education. The objective is to make education and learning fun by using interactive learning and teaching techniques like dance, music, observation, art and craft, games, workshops and many such tools. The idea is to ensure that each child who joins the NGO, looks forward to the next session. Therefore, Gavaksh tries to inspire and initiate solutions which have the potential to change the lives of children who have been deprived of what they deserve.  

To the fellow womenfolk, my message is :

“It’s time for us “WOMEN” to come forth and undertake some extra initiatives. We need to help create an environment of empowerment for other women around us, who are still struggling for their basic rights of education, equality and safety. It is our responsibility to make sure that we co-create an environment of awareness, education and nurturing such that every female is able to rejoice in being a woman!”
