PROJECT Shakti

Addressing Violence against Women

Recent data from the National Crime Records Bureau suggests that crimes against women have more than doubled over the last ten years. Domestic violence has been found to be the most reported crime with 10 cases being reported every hour, adding up to more than 909,713 cases in the last decade. India reports 3 rapes, 3 cases of kidnapping and abduction and 5 cases of molestations – every hour. This is to say nothing of unreported crimes which, experts believe, are innumerable. Studies conducted in 2011 found that more than 66% of the women surveyed had been sexually harassed between two to five times in a year. The rate of violence against women is undeniably alarming, prompting many to term it an “epidemic.”

Udaan’s Project Shakti aims to emulate globally proven strategies of prevention, by modifying them to better address the problems of rural beneficiaries. The Project will adopt a multiā€ pronged approach that includes:

  • Creating awareness about violence against women,
  • Conducting workshops that help participants identify causes of violence and learn how to prevent them,
  • Providing information about how and where to access support when violence has occurred
  • Encouraging beneficiaries to report cases of violence
  • Providing access to legal representation
