Shuhra--

Your commitment, passion, and experience are very powerful. Related to the brass tacks of your plan...in my opinion, audio has a MAJOR future in social entrepreneurship and tech alike--lighter on bandwidth than video, reaches illiterate and partially literate folks in ways that writing cannot, passive audio can be consumed while completing other tasks (or, more importantly in many situations, without anyone realizing that you're consuming content at all). You seem to be on the cutting edge of a massively disruptive, game-changing initiative through the provision of accessible education in this platform--women directly benefit from each of these features in unique and powerful ways that seem to be difficult to understand from a male perspective. I am glad you are forging ahead with the concept while centering women's experiences and needs.

Let me know if you ever make your way into India; your idea would have legs here in a big way, and Strength India would be delighted to partner with you. We need more women on the front lines of education across the globe; ones who are powerful and smart enough to make sustainable change within systems designed against us from before the starting line was even drawn.

Sending my best to an inspiring young woman. You are going to do amazing things in this world. :)
Tara

Thank you all for your genuine support and encouragement!
It means the world to us here at Strength India.

Due to quite a bit of system spam, very poor internet access, and our small team's incredibly hectic schedule, I have not had the time to respond to all of you as I would have really liked. People like you all who are genuinely working for the betterment of humanity are rare in the world, and I wish you all the best. I also do genuinely hope to be able to get comments on your projects.

Best ALWAYS,
Tara
