Safe Maharashtra

The project “Safe Maharashtra”, funded by The Australian Consulate General in Mumbai, was carried out in Maharashtra, where we partnered with 5 distinct NGOs (Dhanwantari, Swayam, CORO, Sneha, and Kalapandhari Magasvargiya & Adivasi Gramin Vikas Sanstha) spread out over the state. The project aimed to increase the NGOs’ capacity in gender equality, laws, and data literacy while also focusing on some community-based safety measures.

We have worked with our 5 partner NGOs in Satara, Mumbai, Pune and Latur for the past year. We held workshops in Hindi, Marathi and English along with the NGOs and community members, considering the diverse cultural backgrounds. The workshops covered a variety of subjects, including gender sensitivity, legal training, computer literacy, data dashboards, and building capacity for data collection via the Safecity platform.

Achievements of the Project 

The Red Dot Foundation team trained 2,153 people, and the partner NGOs reached out to 5,052 people through their workshops. The project impacted 288 communities, with 198 incidents recorded on the Safecity platform. We could also reach out to 751 people through the community campaigns.

Marathi, the state language of Maharashtra, has been added to the Safecity platform. The questions were modified to empathetically allow survivors to share their experiences. They were also shown how to identify the community/ location they are reporting from. This will allow them to identify issues in a specific area and find solutions to create a safe neighbourhood through localised collective action.
