The Global India Fund will honor humanitarian and celebrated actor Ashley Judd at its benefit gala 2013 themed, “Invest in Girls, Invest in a Stronger Future.”
“Ashley has been a tireless advocate for girls and women in India, and across the developing world,” Dr. Amita N. Vyas, founder of the Global India Fund, stated in a press release. “Through her extensive travels and global advocacy efforts Ashley has raised the profile of women and girl’s health issues among politicians, policy makers and the general public.”
The Global India Fund’s annual gala inspires philanthropy to improve access to healthcare for girls and women in India, where the need is overwhelming.
“I am honored to accept this award from the Global India Fund on behalf of the many inspiring girls, women and health workers I have met over the years who are far more deserving than I of recognition for the work they do every day,” Judd stated.
“Access to basic healthcare should never be a barrier for a girl or woman to reach their full potential. The need for private investments that support the development of promising new health solutions cannot be understated.”
