Through her work as a storyteller, photographer and nonprofit leader, Babita saw firsthand the power in hearing girls' stories in their own voices. When friend and fellow girls' advocate, Tara Abrahams, mentioned a similar desire to amplify the voices of girls, Babita knew she was about to embark on her newest venture—a global media platform.
Together, the two women launched kahani, a print magazine for girls by girls from around the world, designed to inform, elevate & inspire. Targeted at 12-to-18 year old girls, kahani features a global perspective & diverse representation of girls from a range of communities, cultures & countries. By focusing on print, kahani is accessible to girls in locations where connectivity remains a luxury rather than a part of everyday life—from rural villages in Uganda to neighborhoods in the Bronx.
Because girls with dreams become women with vision.
