FOUNDER, SOMY ALI

Somy Ali, Founder and President of No More Tears, witnessed injustices and violence growing up in Pakistan. She herself is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, teenage rape and domestic violence during her time working as an actor in Bollywood. After finishing her education, Somy founded No More Tears in 2007 with the mission to assist and empower victims of human trafficking and domestic violence. Today, Ali and a dedicated group of volunteers, medical professionals and legal advisors help women, children, and men start a new life free from abuse.

Since its inception, the organization has rescued more than 30,000 victims — women, children and members of the LGBTQ community — from severe sexual and physical abuse. Of those survivors, only two returned to their abusers. In addition to providing for immediate emergency needs, NMT has enabled survivors to graduate as paralegals, lawyers, nurses and teachers, as well as with many other professional degrees, through enrollment in school and education funding.
