In view of the same, the Purple Ribbon Collective has started this fundraiser to aid survivors of gender-based violence. We will be donating the entire proceeds raised in this fundraiser to our partner Shakti Shalini, an NGO based in Delhi, which runs a Shelter Home and a Crisis Intervention Counselling Centre for domestic violence survivors as well as provides them legal aid and mental health support.
The Purple Ribbon Collective (PRC) is a student-led initiative that aims to increase awareness and discourse around gender-based violence and the rights of the survivors. Conceptualised in May, 2020- PRC aims to provide comprehensive support to victims by connecting them to pro-bono lawyers, NGOs or counsellors based on their needs, location and financial standing. We have already conducted online fundraising events and are continuing to do so even now.
We are starting this fundraiser to help reach our goal faster, with the generous support and contributions by all those who wish to help.
