This initiative called ‘Sadbhavana’ helps in creating an atmosphere of peace in the face of insurgency in Assam by stressing on the education of the girl child. Members of the NGO help relocate people displaced due to insurgency and assist them with basic necessities.

As a part of the initiative, 20 school girls from Assam came to Mumbai to meet an inspirational figure in Bollywood and the first person they chose was Richa Chadha. Richa agreed to help them without hesitation. The actress spent time with the girls at an Army Officers Institute in Mumbai to speak to them and share words of encouragement.

When asked Richa she said,

“I always love interacting with people, I love people and in this case, the girls were so innocent and hopeful about the future that it was a pleasure to spend time with them”
