FIFTY GOLDEN YEARS
Women’s India Trust has moved on, moved ahead and helped move the women’s movement forward.
Achieving this major milestone has encouraged WIT enormously. Very few women’s organisations have had the distinction of successfully completing half a century. It has involved a long journey of tentative beginnings, expansion, consolidation and moving with the times. Challenges have emerged from diverse directions and met squarely each time.
Founder-Chairman, Kamila Tyabji, passed away fourteen years ago but she still continues to inspire. WIT strives to change in response to changing conditions, keeping the important goals and values in sight. Information Technology has revolutionised the world we live in. Adapting to constant change is in itself an exciting achievement. One may well ask what has WIT really achieved.
WIT’s greatest asset today, is the Governing Body team of dedicated and talented members, working voluntarily and in sync, with the single-minded aim of ensuring the advancement of WIT. WIT’s loyal and hardworking staff, many of whom have been with WIT for several years, deserve special mention and thanks at this time.
Most of all, WIT is beholden to all its generous donors, advertisers and members and all who have stood by and supported WIT through the years. WIT could reach this important landmark only thanks to them.
