Girl at School

A Bit of Background 

In 2019 Mahika Mishra Foundation was founded with a mission to give voice to children. Mahika realised that world over, children do not have voting rights or say in any decision making process. All decisions impacting children are taken by adults, most often, without consulting the children.
Mahika Mishra Foundation runs Letters for Change, an initiative to get children from all over the world to write letters on issues that concern them. Issues that they think can make their lives better. Issues for which they have solutions. Children will write letters to Letters for Change. And, Mahika's team at Letters for Change will read each letter, scan it, and send the hard copy to the right recipient. These letters will be delivered in hundreds and thousands. Letters for Change brings the power of numbers to the voices of children.
