Challenge

This project works to empower Dalit and Tribal women's groups to tackle issues of violence against women in India. It is estimated that 70% of Indian women are victims of domestic violence. Reported rapes increased to 31,878 in 2021- that's nearly 1 every 15 minutes. Many more cases go unreported and marital rape is not a criminal offence in India. Dalit and Tribal women are particularly vulnerable to violence due to their low social and economic status.

Solution

This project helps train and network 12 grassroots women's rights organisations working across 5 states to work on issues affecting women. Your donation enables these organisations to come together and run 'violence against women' awareness campaigns in their regions. It provides extra resources and training for banners, posters, street plays, workshops, camps, and other activities to empower vulnerable women to stand up to violence.

Long-Term Impact

In the long-term, Karuna's partner organisations are working to empower women and change attitudes in wider society. We have already seen reduced violence against women in some of the villages and slums we have been working in for more than 2 years. This results in reduced violence, an increase in the influence women have in society and an increase in enrollment of girls and women in school, the workplace and local governments.
