Ms. Sophia Shaik

  • 2022 Recipient, Development & Welfare of Women and Children

I have contributed in my small way by emboldening the deprived classes of the society, particularly the oppressed and suppressed womenfolk to exercise their rights and empower themselves by acquiring special skills. I have been fighting consistently for the cause of victims spanning from victims of domestic violence to that of talaq by getting them shelter, education and conscientize the working class about their rights. They are now not afraid of raising their voice against the injustice in society. This has resulted in the emergence of a good number of young activists to stand against injustice. They have been working as an adhesive to join all sections of the society.
