Posted June 8, 2020 from India

Through direct trainings with college going women and awarness campaign in the universities, we were about to impact: 1. Young college going women between ages 17-22 of 27 colleges across Thane and Mumbai districts of Maharashtra. 2. Young college going men between ages 17-22 of 27 colleges 3. Women working in unorganized or informal workplaces such as domestic workers, sanitation workers, self help groups, etc. 4. Female and male college teachers of 27 colleges.

 

As a result of these efforts, more women are encouraged to go to universities without fearing for their safety.  

How many people have you impacted since your last update?

The ICCs under the SH Act 2013 is an excellent forum to redress the complaints of SH and intimidation. Very heartening to know that positive results are coming on ground.
