About Azadi

Azadi means FREEDOM in Hindi, Farsi, and Urdu. And at The Azadi Project, this forms the ethos of everything we do.

Our work with refugees centers primarily around women and young children — those most affected by conflict of any kind. Apart from being susceptible to gender-based violence and trafficking, the unseen mental trauma due to forced displacement and separation from loved ones is a global crisis in the making. This is where we try to make a difference.
