Event Description

Daughters of Destiny chronicles the lives of five girls over a seven-year period as they navigate two very different worlds — that of the poverty and prejudice into which they were born, and the other of opportunity through Shanti Bhavan. Shanti Bhavan is a residential school for children from India’s lowest socioeconomic class, which strives to break the cycle of poverty for India’s most disenfranchised children by providing them a holistic education by supporting them from the first day of school to their first day of work. Daughters of Destiny emerges as one of the most complex narratives about poverty, hope, and destiny.

Join us for a special screening and conversation with Shanti Bhavan Founder and Principal Dr. Abraham George and Director of Operations Ajit George to better understand how their team is empowering children from India’s lowest socioeconomic class to create transformative change for their families and communities.
