Viji Srinivasan

ADITHI was never her organisation it was always OURS and though almost all the women who started with ADITHI in 1988 have their own organisations are still proud to be known as ADITHI women. She encouraged, nurtured and nourished their talents and made them realise their own potential. Today they are leading forces in the state with strong independent organisations in the field of development. They carry the name of their new organisations but all of them are proud of their legacy – being ADITHI women. Each one of them has a story to tell about Viji and how she brought a change in their lives. Viji is not there physically but as a Guiding Star she will always be with us forever.
