‘My Vote My Voice’ (MVMV) मेरा वोट मेरी आवाज़ is an initiative by Noor Takkar and Siya Malhotra, both students of the British School New Delhi. Being minors didn’t deter our passion and belief in the project and after discussing with our families, we decided to take on this project under the aegis of an NGO – Bhai Sahib Dittamal & Sons Charitable Trust, that operates out of Delhi for the last 45 yrs and runs a medical and a spiritual center (ashram).
We have greatly benefited by this association,especially with their constant administrative and organizational support.
However, our endeavour is to be financial independent by raising sufficient funds through donations to take care of the necessary expenditure for My Vote My Voice.
