Our Story

In a Starbucks in Sacramento, co-founders Ria Panda, Srija Sankavaram, Meghna Prasanth, and Saketh Panchumarthy were sitting in an isolated corner. Expecting a fairly normal study session, a ragged, unfamiliar woman approached the group. Being wary due to the age-old proverb “stranger danger”, the four friends aimed to keep the conversation short and cordial.

However, this lady was different. Seeming desperate, she asked Ria for her phone, who warily gave it to the woman. “You ruined my life!” she screamed into the small cellular device occupying her grip. The screech of the woman sent chills down the group. Ria, thus, asked a simple question: “Who was that?” What Ria expected to be a short conversation turned into a story of tragedy. The woman, wearing rusted steel rings and no shoes, spoke in a hoarse voice. She introduced herself as Crystal, and told us about her constant run from her “master”. Srija, Meghna, Saketh, and Ria couldn’t comprehend what the woman had been through as the concepts of domestic violence and human trafficking were strongly implicated in her explanation.

Crystal’s story is what sparked Project Morph. The co-founders determination to help people who suffer the same predicament as Crystal deserve another chance. Project Morph was founded as a student-led initiative project aiming to create a lasting change for domestic violence victims through means of fundraising donations, and events. We aim to assist those in Bay Area as our fulfillment comes from causing positive change in the lives of the less fortunate.
