This includes working towards ending all practices that perpetuate violence: such as supporting education for girls in India. We do this by transforming the underlying cultural norms that perpetuate regressive practices.

We are an organisation working to create a cultural shift and make discrimination and violence against girls and women unacceptable. We also support and work regarding the education of girls in India. Experiences and stories are our tools of choice, as we endeavour to make the subject of gender-based violence mainstream.
