The Breakthrough Voice 12th July, 2019

#20YearsOfBT: The Day We All Got Very Nostalgic On Twitter.

In 1999, with the launch of the song Mann Ke Manjeere, Breakthrough India was born. It’s been 20 years since that day and we can safely say that it’s been a pretty wild ride. From launching a global path breaking campaign on domestic violence (Bell Bajao) to starting conversations on ending early marriage, we’ve done some pretty radical things. But none of it would have been possible without the people who make up Breakthrough. 

20 years is a heck of a long time and long enough for some great memories to accumulate. With that in mind, we asked people on Twitter what was their one moment or story that they most strongly associated with Breakthrough:

And we got some great answers! 

1. Urvashi Gandhi, Director- Advocacy at Breakthrough India, had this lovely thing to say:

2. Ditipriya Ghosh, Director – Human Resource Management, had this poignant point to make:

3. Yogita Verma, Head – Resource Mobilisation & Communication , shared a story that hit home for many of us:

4. Anika Verma, Senior Manager, talked about realising a very simple right: the right of women to occupy public spaces

We were also pleasantly surprised to have other people chiming in with their own change stories! Here are a few:



It’s been really heartening to look back and realise how many people have been passionate about working together to make sure women and girls can live free of fear! Here’s to another 20 years!
