Welcome to Ola Foundation
Ola Foundation was born out of a belief that was inspired by real interactions, research, and extensive study on the far-reaching impact of enabling and equipping women with the right skills. Our vision is to facilitate the access of resources and opportunities to women, thus, empowering them to bring about sustainable change in their lives, their families and in turn the community at large.
We are dedicated to empowering women to become changemakers and leaders in their communities, thereby contributing to nation-building.
Why we exist: An estimated 3 in 4 Indian women don’t work and when they do, data reveals an increased involvement in family and community decision-making and a disproportionate increase in expenditure on children’s education, health, and nutrition.-
Understanding the Ripple Effect that they create, we teach her to earn and save money and build emotional resilience to secure her own future and her Children’s/family’s.
