Due to the nature of domestic violence, people are unaware of what it is and whether it  is right or wrong. Here at TheKickthSense and Armor Up, we (Arnav and Shreya) want to change things. We are willing to incur costs to make sure that these wrongdoings do not go unavenged, and this cannot happen unless you, a brother or sister of these innocent people give them a hand by donating to our cause. Together we are raising money for VOICE4Girls (http://voice4girls.org/) an award winning NGO that works with adolescents boys and girls. Your money will be used to educate the young girls and boys about these atrocities and how to prevent and break them.

Our Aim
We aim to create a positive environment where young boys and men are advocates for gender equality and women empowerment, just like us. Due to patriarchy in our society, gender inequality is a major issue and women face continued violence and discrimination,  including sexual harassment and domestic violence. According to the National Crimes Records Bureau, in 2016 the sexual violence of minor girls increased by 82% compared with the previous year. Chillingly, across all cases 95% of the men were not strangers but family, friends and neighbours. Another study shows, over 50% of Indian men and women still believe that sometimes women deserve a beating. one woman is killed every hour for not bringing enough dowry to a husband. These reports highlight the need for change in the mindsets and attitudes of men towards women. To raise awareness on this issue we want to carry out a gender equality awareness campaign tailored towards youth so that we can instil a clear understanding of a gender equality culture in them. Although we do want an active participation of both boys and men. The key areas we want to focus on are protect women & girls rights, promote welfare and increase respect for females.
