Sahodari Foundation

Sahodari Foundation is a pioneering organization in India for transgender persons and under-priviledged women that uses art and artistic expressions for speaking about the rights of the silenced within these communities and establishing their livelihood. The Foundation has trained more than 200 transgender women in arts through workshops and has done a number of groups shows across India for transgender persons. Through this initiative, so many transgender artists from the under-privileged communities are supported and opportunities are enabled to them. Through the Red Wall Project, Sahodari encourages sexual victims from the transgender community to speak about the violence they faced and encourages them to document their stories to create public awareness on transgender inclusion. The Foundation was found in 2008 by Kalki Subramaniam, a celebrated transgender rights activist who is also famous for her paintings and literary contributions.
