PEHCHAN, an NGO, is an initiative of a group of Media professionals and was founded by Shri D S Mendhiratta with the central objective of nurturing the girl child and empowering women through education. PEHCHAN organised the 7th Rajiv Gandhi Excellence Awards evening at India Habitat Centre to Honor the Achievers from different sections of society. Pehchan strongly believe that the pen is mightier than the sword, and that a girl’s biggest armor against all the hardships is empowerment. And empowerment and education go hand in hand. With this goal in mind, PEHCHAN strives to provide a strong foundation in the form of education and support to girls and uneducated women.
Since our Late Prime Minister Shri Rajiv Gandhi ji was a sincere supporter of the girl child, these awards have been instituted in his name to HONOR and cherish his fond memory. It is his name that guides us each day at PEHCHAN. Through these Awards we wish to HONOR every year and reward the hard work & outstanding performance of the ACHIEVERS in the society.
These awards, year after year, will identify and HONOR outstanding personalities who have created a niche for themselves in the society and inspire others to follow suit.
