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.

I am personally associating myself with CrossBow to raise my voice against crimes against women in India. For girls growing up in India, harassment and abuse have been a part of our childhoods. Ask the Indian girls and women you know if they have faced any harassment in any way. The answer will be very clear. 

Now more than ever, violence against women is perpetually in the news and the horrors of gang rape, dowry deaths, acid attacks and honour killings should not be ignored any longer. We have endured far too long. Join us and propel urgent change. Please donate! No amount is too small. Together we can! 

Our Goal

This September, Srishti Bakshi, our Lead Arrow, on her Modern Day Dandi March, will be walking 3800 km (2300 miles) from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu (South India) to Srinagar, Kashmir (North India). On this through hike, 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?

We know that each one of you strives to give your time and hard earned money to fight for causes you believe in. It’s hard! 
 
What if we told you that your daily steps, clocked into our App will unlock funds by Corporate/Foundation/Philanthropic DONORS to benefit Non-Profits who are working on-ground protecting women and girl-child rights in our country. CrossBow , a mobile app , where you will clock in your daily steps is a mass outreach and engagement platform tailored for cause-driven campaigns. 

As the Empower Women Champion for Change 2017, we will be on the road for 260 days, walking from one city to the other. 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 changemakers on-ground who will continue the mission
  3. Document stories through shooting a documentary feature film.
 

What do we need from you?

They say it takes a village to make a achieve a task well! We need the changemaker from every corner of the world to succeed here!

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.
