Lucknow:“Feminist coalition is formed with the aim of uniting grassroots organizations to take collective action against gender-based violence.” said Dr Urvashi Sahni founder and CEO of SHEF at Feminist coalition meeting on Wednesday 26th July. This meeting was organized Study Hall Education Foundation (SHEF)’s Aarohini Initiative. Over 35 NGOs and government officials like UNICEF, Care India, AALI, HUM Foundation, Helping Hands, and YES Foundation were in attendance.
The purpose of this annual meeting was to foster solutions, encourage collaboration and have dialogues on collective action that can be taken on critical issues faced by marginalized communities for centuries, especially women.
“Through collaborative efforts, NGOs that are present here can seamlessly navigate through problems that they were unable to handle independently. This collaboration can turn into a powerful alliance” said Priyanka Saxena who is in charge of the The "India's Daughters' Campaign," a campaign run by the Study Hall Educational Foundation, which has a powerful strategy that involves boys and men while addressing gender inequality, instigating change within them and the society.
Saumya a representative of AALI Foundation Lucknow said “we should take charge of India's Daughters' Campaign and educate boys and men about gender justice. Help them build a gender lens which would help create collective front against gender based violence”
The event was highly engaging, consisting of various activities and discussions that fostered mutual understanding among the NGOs. It paved the way for numerous potential collaborations in the future.
