This website www.standupagainstviolence.org is a space in which we name the violence, we or our close ones, face. It helps in understanding its nature, to deal with our fears and to think of the steps we can take. It is a space which helps in finding a solution.
The website is developed by Akshara, a women’s resource centre, based in Mumbai. For the past fifteen years, we have worked for a gender just society, a society where women can live with dignity, free from violence and discrimination.
Akshara’s programs empower women to know their rights, live without threats of violence within their homes and communities, and build necessary skills to ensure wellbeing for themselves and their families. Akshara works with under privileged women and men, communities; focuses on public awareness and attitudes and advocates for systemic and policy changes. You can look up www.aksharacentre.org for more info on us.
Akshara was established in 1995 as a not for profit and is a project of a registered Trust- FREA India. We are registered under Section 80G for tax exemption and have a FCRA registration.
