Animedh Charitable Trust (ACT) celebrated the International Women’s Month by celebrating ACT DEEVA and awarding Women achievers at an event in Mumbai. The supremely talented and gorgeous Ankita Lokhande who was seen in the show Pavitra Rishta was the special guest of honour, who lit the deeya and gave away the award for Vocational Excellence to Samiksha Santosh Chavan.
ACT DEEVA recognizes those women who have managed to survive the odds, had the courage to challenge society’s norms and inspired millions of other women to follow their path. ACT believes in the power of the woman – her ability to create, nurture and transform the lives around her. While every woman is remarkable in her own way, there are those who have broken the glass ceiling and gone beyond conventions and stereotypes; those who have challenged and changed the definition of what it means to be a woman in today’s day and age.
On the occasion, Ankita Lokhande said, "It is amazing what Animedh Charitable Trust has been doing for less privileged women, since many years. I am happy to be a part of the ACT DEEVA celebration and it's so inspiring to see so many women join hands together and work towards uplifting each other. We need women at all levels, including the top, to reshape the conversation, to make sure women's voices are heard and heeded and Nivedita is doing a great job at that. Super honoured to be a part of such a noble endeavor"
The evening saw beautiful dance, skit and fashion show performances all conceptualised and executed by the beneficiary women themselves. It was wonderful to see 150 women from across ACT centres come together and celebrate the spirit of womanhood.
