TAKE ONE STEP IN A #BILLIONSTEPSFORWOMEN TO EMPOWER WOMEN IN INDIA


This is a call to action to everyone who’s cringed or raged about violence against women. 
Violence against women is perpetually in the news these days. It's a slap in the face of India and its claim to its modernity and progress. Well now, YOU can be a change-maker. YOU can help break this vicious social evil. YOU can back our Modern Day Dandi March on our journey of a #billionstepsforwomen. 

Our Goal

This September, Srishti Bakshi started her journey from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu, India, walking 3800 km (2300 miles) to Srinagar, Kashmir. With this on-foot journey, team CrossBow Miles hopes to collect ONE BILLION STEPS, from you towards making India a safer country for women.  

How will we achieve our Goal?
What if we told you that your daily steps, clocked into our CrossBow Miles App will unlock resources by Corporate/Foundation/Philanthropic DONORS to benefit Non-Profits who are working on-ground protecting women and girl-child rights in our country. 

Meanwhile, what we have been doing on the road and will continue doing for 260 days is -  
  1. Conducting Workshops on  financial and digital literacy to empower women with examples of how they can harness the power of the internet in their daily lives and make savings for their future. These workshops focus on sowing the seeds of change in women who then become change-makers for their families and communities by teaching them their rights, providing them access to and knowledge of better health, hygiene and sanitation systems, educating them about clean cooking fuels and more.
  2. Building an extensive volunteer network of change-makers on-ground who will continue the mission
  3. Documenting stories through shooting a documentary feature film.
 

What do we need from you?

We need you to be the change-maker that we know you can be! 
 
Please CONTRIBUTE FUNDS, as much as you are comfortable with, to help us organise our 260 day MODERN DAY DANDI MARCH. 
 
We need a sum total of INR 1 Crore/USD 150,000 to organize this grand march successfully.  
Fund Utilization (₹ Lakhs)

Also, please do share our story on your social feeds.  We will need each one of you to discuss what we are setting out to do. Download the app and walk for your preferred cause everyday. By adopting this digital movement, people can kickstart change. 
 
At CrossBow Miles, we believe that each one of us is a CHANGE-MAKER.
So please go ahead and launch an arrow of support to help CrossBow Miles hit its target.

19th March 2018
CrossBow Miles is now on the last leg of its 3800 km on-foot journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, after crossing the 3000 km mark. Srishti Bakshi is now marching upwards and onwards through Haryana, Punjab and finally onto J&K.


This came on the back of an action-packed stay in Delhi. Team CrossBow Miles met the President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind who reiterated his support to the campaign, with valuable suggestions on growing and motivating the volunteer network.


The movement also got tremendous international recognition. Srishti got the highest accolade from the British Commonwealth, receiving the Commonwealth Points of Light award for India from the British High Commissioner, Sir Dominic Asquith, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen.


CrossBow Miles used the time in Delhi to impart what it had learnt through practical experience and observations of the problems faced by women in India and possible solutions.

We participated in the Gender Equality Summit by the United National Global Compact Network India, an ITC knowledge roundtable with noted lawyers and women leaders,  #SHEROESHours, a multi-city event to #PressforProgress on the occasion of International Women's Day and many more thought-provoking workshops and interactions.  

The standout events in Delhi where the heart and the mood of the city were so visible were the Public Wall Painting at Sarojini Nagar market where over 300 people painted messages of gender equality and the Public Night Walk where over 15,000 people rallied together to reclaim the night as a safe space for women and children.




With both public events, the atmosphere was distinctly electric with the energy and determination to bring about change in society and make it safer and better for women.  

Please do join in this movement. Every step you take goes towards building a safer and better India for women and girls and brighter future for all.
