Celebrating Pride Month 2024:’s Generous Support for Bengaluru's Transgender Community

Pride Month is a time of celebration, reflection, and solidarity for the LGBTQ+ community worldwide. For Anora Charitable Foundation (Reach Lives), it represents a critical period to amplify our efforts towards supporting and uplifting the transgender community in Bengaluru, India. This June, we are proud to highlight our collaboration with Software Services Pvt Ltd., which generously sponsored 35 kits for impoverished transgender individuals. The distribution of these kits on June 29th, 2024, marks a significant step in our ongoing mission to provide essential support to those in need.

The Struggles of Impoverished Trans-Persons in India

Transgender individuals in India face multifaceted challenges, particularly those living in poverty. Many are compelled to resort to daily collections or begging to survive, a reality born from systemic discrimination and limited access to education, healthcare, and employment opportunities. These struggles underscore the importance of targeted interventions and sustained support from organizations like ours.

Our Commitment to the Transgender Community

Over the years, Anora Charitable Foundation (ACF) has implemented various initiatives to support transgender persons, particularly in Bengaluru. Notable among these is the LGBTQube project of 2022, where we successfully raised funds for trans-health initiatives. This project also sponsored 50 transgender individuals to enjoy their first movie in a multiplex, thanks to our partnerships with PVR Cinemas and BookMyShow's Book a Smile initiative.

During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, ACF distributed rations and essential medical supplies to over 1,000 transgender persons. These efforts highlight our enduring commitment to ensuring the well-being and dignity of one of the most marginalized communities in our society.

The Importance of Pride Month

June is globally recognized as Pride Month, a period dedicated to honoring the resilience and achievements of the LGBTQ+ community. It is a time to reflect on the progress made, acknowledge the ongoing struggles, and galvanize support for a more inclusive and equitable future. For the transgender community in India, Pride Month serves as a reminder of the critical need for acceptance, support, and systemic change.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Software Services Pvt Ltd. for their generous support during Pride Month 2024. Their contribution has made a tangible difference in the lives of many transgender individuals. To learn more about our work and how you can support our cause, please visit our website at
