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.
On 15th September 2017, 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?
With help from YOU! 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 -
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.
Building an extensive volunteer network of change-makers on-ground who will continue the mission
Documenting stories through shooting a documentary feature film.
