Empowering women since 2006 - our impact

Gateway to good Business

The world is working on achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

Sudara’s mission fits squarely with five of them.

No Poverty

Poverty is a catalyst to entering the sex trade. Without resources to support themselves or their children, some women feel they have no choice but to enter the sex trade for survival. This is why skills training and sustainable employment is at the foundation of our model.

Quality Education

With our partners we’ve trained more than 7,500 at-risk women in professions of their choice so that they can find dignified and self-sustaining employment and be free from the sex trade.

Gender Equality

Access to sustainable living wages provides a pathway to financial independence and a sense of purpose, which in turn establishes self-empowerment. Inspired by dignity, the women we elevate live more purposeful and hopeful lives.

Decent Work & Economic Growth

With our partners we offer women education and skills training across 11 vocations with a 90% employment placement rate, as well as micro-loans for women to start their own businesses.

Reduced Inequalities

Socioeconomic status, lack of education, and gender are all potential risk factors for women in India. Reducing inequalities is core to what we do. When women are given opportunity, not only do they find personal freedom but they reach back and elevate entire communities, breaking further cycles of oppression and slavery.
