unatti turns 22

Over two decades, Unatti Foundation has helped dozens of young girls move from surviving to thriving. With safe and secure housing, nutritious food, mental and physical health support, and secured education well beyond high school, our girls become extraordinary women.

Below are stories of survival and stories of triumph. We invite you to learn more about our work and become a sustaining donor.

Beyond the Walls of Unatti -Sponsoring Girls in our community
Education is key in both reducing poverty and disrupting harmful cultural practices, like forced child labor & forced child marriage. At Unatti we are expanding our educational sponsorships and proven wraparound programs beyond the walls of the Unatti Home in order to reach girls in our community whose families cannot afford to keep them in school.

Cooking With the Unatti Girls
We are so excited to share the first video of a new series written, produced, filmed, and edited by the Unatti girls. This cooking series centers the girls' own voices and experience and highlights their passions, stories, and interests as family members at the Unatti Group Home for Girls. This first entry into filmmaking is particularly inspiring as Rupali redefines family by experiencing love through cooking.

Its been 20 Years, A message from our Founder, Stephanie Waisler-Rubin

As lockdown began, the dreaming began!
At Unatti Foundation, we teach our girls from the moment they join our family, that they have a choice for their future and every day is an opportunity to craft the life they can dream. So as lockdown began, the dreaming began.
Our Unatti girls have courage, they engage, and they are fierce.
Our Unatti girls have courage, they engage, and they are fierce. They do not shy away and they are not the circumstances that they were born into. They become nurses, medical technicians, social workers, green leaders, or whatever they choose to be. They give back to those less fortunate than they are and they care deeply about the world.
