My Powerful Pen is a literary campaign launched to provide a platform to the youth to express their thoughts and experiences related to the universal issue of ‘Gender Equality’. The project is supported by the Girl Up Campaign, a campaign working globally along with the United Nations Foundation for gender equality.
Written entries were invited from school and college students through a poster campaign in late 2018. The My Powerful Pen project has received over numerous entries from the youth worldwide and mostly from India. Fifty of the entries have so far been shortlisted- the articles/poems/essays are being compiled into one book to manifest a united voice to empower the cause of gender equality and generate awareness.
We plan to publish the book by January 2020 and present it at upcoming literature festivals. For accomplishing this mission and project, we need funds to the tune of 35,000 INR by January 10th, 2020. We seek your support to amplify the collective voice of the youth to empower women and promote gender equality in all its dimensions.
The project was initiated by Navya Khanna of Shri Ram School, Aravali, Gurugram INDIA & Anubhav Raghav of Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan New Delhi, INDIA
