The Board and Management of the African Youth Development Foundation (AFRYDEF) are glad to announce the appointment of Mavayna Manav, a vibrant young lady who decided to dedicate her entire lifetime to the empowerment of women and girls as her Global Ambassador in India.
This appointment was done in recognition of her several commitments to the well being of the women around the world. Mavayna has won so many Prestigious Awards for supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
She is the Chairperson of the Youth wing of the National Human Rights and Humanitarian Federation in the State of Delhi. She is the Ambassador of the “My Body is My Body” in India, a child abuse prevention organization based in the USA.She is the Ambassador of the Global Peace Chain, Malaysia, the Child Ambassador of “THAC” in Finland and the State Secretary of the National Women and Child Development in the State of Delhi in India.
Mavayna has taken up many causes which aim at improving the lives of women and children but her major focus is to pass the torch of self-awareness and self-love through positive and motivating discussions on female health and menstrual hygiene. As a result of her actions in encouraging women to freely talk about menstrual hygiene, she was appointed the Menstrual Hygiene Management Ambassador for the Gramalaya and Carevanta Foundation.
Even as a current student at the Delhi University, she has developed a project called “PADYATRA”, which is going to be the world’s first and longest walk aimed at making the talks about menstrual hygiene a mainstream discussion among women and girls.
Our Ambassador wishes that the youths around the world would join forces her in breaking the taboo associated with freely talking about women’s menstrual periods and female hygiene. Mavayna is a typical example of a young lady that struggled in life to get where she is today.
No wonder, she had this to say about her life… “My life is the meaning of, when life throws lemons at you, better make some lemonades with them!”
As young and energetic as she is, we are sure that AFRYDEF will benefit from her drive to change the world, especially for the womenfolk.
To God be all the glory!
