Dr Vani Khare (Founder and CEO)
Vani holds a PhD degree in biotechnology and she has been involved with Academia and corporate scientific sectors for past 10 years. In 2012 she came across few victims who faced severe trauma of sexual abuse during their childhood. Their stories affected her deeply and she decided to do more research on the topic. She was in for a shock. The crime of child sexual abuse prevails all over the world. In india alone, 53% children suffer from sexual abuse. Her only question was “how can anyone do this to an innocent child?” She soon realized, that there is a more complicated dynamics than just the act of abuse itself-ranging from lack of awareness to shame, judgement, silence, guilt and fear. She immediately realized it’s her calling, and she has to answer it. Her answer was FAiTH, an open forum to discuss and combat abuse. A dedicated platform to provide empowerment to children, teenagers and adults. At the age of 36 Vani is a proud mother of more than 10000 empowered children and teenagers world wide. Their smiles give her the reason to keep walking on the path she has chosen for herself. Click here to listen to Vani talking about her journey and FAiTH.
