Since the initiation temporary evacuation late last year, Sheroes now runs its business in a hastily erected building. The evacuation has disrupted the business of the cafe in last six months. With the evacuation now looking permanent, Sheroes needs a new space to run the centre. The cafe, located close to the Taj Mahal, has become a popular joint among tourists who visit the Taj city. It is increasingly becoming a talking point on social media sites, attracted Chief Minister of the state, Prime Minister of Italy, First Lady of France and many eminent celebrities across the globe.

Hello Friends,

Thank you for your love & support you showered on us.

Since the lockdown began, the closing of the cafes has caused uncertainty in the Jobs of the beneficiaries & other staff associated with the cafe. We fought tooth & nails every day to secure their jobs, for the same we started a fundraising campaign (bit.ly/supportsheroesincovid) to ensure a survival amount of Rs 5K for the next 6 months for the beneficiaries. Later with the help of supporters & loved ones we were able to increase that amount to Rs 10K.

Also, we launched a helpline number for the acid attack survivors in India & interestingly after its launch we got the overwhelming response. The good news is we have decided to help the 30 survivors other than of Sheroes with a sum of Rs 5K for 6 months, as they were also suffering to fulfill their basic & fundamental needs out of which the first installment has been released to them.

The other relieving news came from the Lucknow chapter of the Sheroes Hangout, where after the guidelines from the Government the operations began from 8th June. However, the sales graph is very low & below the average and eventually, it is not able to cover the running costs & staff salaries who are working there in these challenging times but yes somewhere it is helping us to regain the lost momentum.

Talking about Agra chapter, it seems very difficult to run the cafe even with the new normals for another 6 months, the reason being Agra is very badly affected with the COVID & is among the top affected cities of the state & the other reason is its business highly depends upon the tourists and there are uncertainties over the travel & tourism in the near future. It would not be wrong to say that the cafe business is going to suffer probably for more than one year. But the concern is the closing of operations has not stopped the operational expenses including the rents & staff salaries other than beneficiaries.

We wish you to be safe during a global pandemic.

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your love & support.

COVID-19 has brought some of the most difficult times that we have seen together, as the human race. While it restricts our movement and free will, it also hampers our growth and success.

Sheroes Hangout is a small community, dedicated to the well being of acid - attack survivors. This pandemic has caused not just the community to lose out on their income but has also had a negative and demotivational impact on their psyche.

The Crowdfunding Programme is a way to request you to help us benefit a noble cause like this! The link for Crowdfunding is Live now at https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-garima-awasthi

Please spread the word. A minimal contribution will make a huge difference in the lives of many.

Thank you.

COVID-19 has brought some of the most difficult times that we have seen together, as the human race. While it restricts our movement and free will, it also hampers our growth and success. Sheroes Hangout is a small community, dedicated to the well being of our acid - attack survivors under which two cafes are solely run by them in Agra and Lucknow simultaneously.

This pandemic has caused not just the community to lose out on their income because of the lockdown across the country but has also had a negative and de-motivational impact on their psyche as the routine medical treatments and pre-planned surgeries are pending. Reach-out programs and rehabilitation center operations are on hold.
