Divine Activity is Raising Funds to Support A Gift Story- An Online Gift Shop run by Acid Attack Survivors

What is "Divine Activity"?
This fundraiser is undertaken by Divine Activity, an initiative by Mrs.India International Queen, the biggest Beauty Pageant for married women across the globe. With this effort, we aim to give back to the society where our Queens try to bring smiles to the faces of the less privileged groups of society by taking monthly pledges. This month we have pledged to support A Gift Story- An Online Gift Shop run by Acid Attack Survivors (Sheroes) that helps them learn marketable skills to create products and create meaningful jobs for themselves in a booming industry during these uncertain times of the pandemic.

Meet A Gift Story- A Small Business Run by Acid Attack Survivors
A Gift Story is a project undertaken by Chhanv Foundation, an NGO formed after the countrywide Stop Acid Attacks Campaign (2013). Since 2014, Chhanv has worked hard for the rehabilitation of acid attack survivors through advocacy, medical and legal assistance with a prime focus on providing employment to the survivors. With the closure of our Sheroes Hangout Cafesin Agra & Lucknow during the pandemic, the self-sustainable community of Acid Attack Campaigners lost 81% of our revenue and jobs when they needed it the most.
For communities like Acid Attack Survivors, earning a livelihood has been ever challenging due to the fear of acceptance in the public spaces and reluctance from the ingrained stereotypes seeded in the survivors. That is when A Gift Story was started by Chhanv. A Gift Story was carefully curated to equip survivors with marketable skills like baking and arts & crafts to prepare gift products that could be further sold, and hence create another sustainable structure to nourish the community of Acid Attack Survivors.

What does this Divine Activity Fundraiser Achieve for A Gift Story?
Your donation to this campaign will be used to provide acid attack survivors with a delivery vehicle for A Gift Story. This resource will help them open another logistical avenue for survivors in this project. This delivery vehicle will increase the scope of awareness through this project. This would elevate our campaign and give better visibility to this business on the ground and in the market. Survivors delivering the orders that they made themselves would add a vital self-sufficient parallel to this project. At last, your donation fuels the community of acid attack survivors, assures them a livelihood, and teaches them entrepreneurial and hard skills to enhance their capabilities.
