1 Billion STEPS towards a safer world for women!


My wife Srishti Bakshi has taken up a challenge and I am proud to share with you a project which she has been tirelessly working towards for the last one year. 

Srishti is committed to making a difference in the lives of women who are victims of abuse and disparity. She aims to arm these women with financial and digital literacy to break from the shackles of their abusive life. 

She has spent months planning for this arduous journey and I have seen her up close building this initiative into movement which is the need of the hour.

I encourage you to read her plan and help fund this initiative.

The Goal

This September, Srishti, a Champion for Change with Empower Women Initiative by United Nations Women will embark on a 3800 km (2300 miles) on foot journey from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu (South India) to Srinagar, Kashmir (North India). On this through hike, she hopes to collect ONE BILLION STEPS, towards making India a safer country for women.  
 

How will this team achieve their 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.
