JOIN MODERN DAY DANDI MARCH TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Our Story

When we were kids, we were convinced that we had the power to change the world. Then somewhere along the way, we grew up and convinced ourselves that these were just childish dreams.
We settled for realism instead of idealism.  
Traded hope for spreadsheets. 
Chose to turn away rather than fight.

We decided that CHANGE-MAKERS are people other than us. But the truth is quite simple - 
 
EACH ONE OF US DOES HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. 

What is Project CrossBow?

It is a step towards making India safer and better for women. 

Srishti Bakshi, a Champion for Change with the United Nations Empower Women initiative, will be walking 3800 km (2300 miles) from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu (South India) to Srinagar, Kashmir (North India) to sensitize citizens about violence against women and help them fight it through financial and digital literacy.

I am proud to share with you that I am part of this inspiring movement called Arrow by CrossBow and I’m calling you to be an Arrow for change to combat violence against women.

For all those of us who raise, teach or simply love young children, this is a chance to make this great country safer, fairer and equal for women.

Our Goal

This September, Srishti Bakshi, our Lead Arrow, on her Modern Day Dandi March, will be walking 3800 km from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu to Srinagar, Kashmir. On this journey through the spine of India, we hope to collect a total of ONE BILLION STEPS, a sum of daily step contributions by each one of you towards making India a safer country for women.  

 

How will we achieve our Goal?


You will help us get there!
 
Your daily steps, clocked into our CrossBow mobile App will unlock funds by Corporate/Philanthropic DONORS to benefit Non-Profit Organisations who are working to protect women and girl-child rights in our country.  

Meanwhile, as the Empower Women Champion for Change 2017, we will be on the road for 260 days. During this walk  our team of Arrows will be - 
  1. Conducting Workshops on  financial and digital literacy to empower women.
  2. Build an extensive volunteer network of change-makers on the ground who will continue the mission.
  3. Document stories through shooting a documentary feature film.
 
What do we need from you?

Be the change-maker we know you are!
 
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)

Share our story on your social feeds.  We will need each one of you to discuss what we are setting out to do. We need you to sign up. Show us faith and join us. By adopting this digital movement, people across the world will be propelled to kickstart change. 
 
At Arrow by Crossbow, we believe that each one of us is a CHANGE-MAKER.
