Challenge

This project works to raise awareness on the issue of violence against women, women from marginalised communities are particularly vulnerable to violence and sexual assault due to their low social and economic status.

Solution

This project helps train and network 12 locally-led 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.
