IMPHAL: Women’s rights activist and social worker Urmila Chanam from Manipur has been awarded the prestigious international award, World Pulse Spirits Award for Sisterhood and international recognition.
The award was announced by Jensine Larsen, Founder and CEO of the world’s largest social network of women accompanied by jury, board and community members on January 30, 2020 from its headquarters in Oregon, USA.
Urmila joined the World Pulse in 2010 and has been working dedicatedly on empowering women, building a sisterhood among women, bringing in faith that women are better off “together” than on their own.
“Sisterhood can make a woman believe she is not alone whenever she faces a big moment or stand at a crossroad, be it in her personal or professional life,” Urmila said. And that has been my experience which has become my goal, to try and link every woman so she can enjoy the gift of sisterhood, she added.
Urmila also expressed her joy on the award stating that she was “deeply touched to receive this award” and that she wished she could hug each and every sister who thought about her.
