Tharuni

Working towards Empowerment of Adolescent Girls Women and the Aged

‘THARUNI’ was started in 2000, by Dr. Mamatha Raghuveer and her mother as a small effort. However, today, Tharuni blossomed into a Forum for the Girls where they can get the required support for all their basic needs. ‘THARUNI’ means a young woman. Being a Non – Governmental organization, it works for the all round development of Adolescent Girls, Women & the Aged. Tharuni aims to educate the girl to enjoy a higher self-esteem and greater say in decision making, to marry at a right age, and play a major role in social development. Tharuni also focuses on ensuring the well being of women at all stages of their lives.
