Pandita Ramabai was an Indian social reformer, a pioneer in the education and emancipation of women in India. It is amazing to see how one woman, whose life overflowed with love, compassion and dedication was used by God for the cause of women in India. She made herself a simple instrument in the hands of the Master Potter. God used her marvelously to shape broken lives and make them whole again.
Ramabai traveled around India in the 19th century to give lectures on women’s emancipation and established one of the country’s first women’s shelters and schools. At a time when women were expected to be little seen and never heard, Ramabai was an outspoken advocate of women’s education and participation in public affairs. Through her initiatives at Mukti she helped “Shape the Hearts” of many destitute women in India. In over 130 years Mukti has made a difference in the lives of more than 100,000 such beautiful hearts who stand witness to this transformation.
