300,000: End the silence around gender violence: 2014 Prajnya fundraising drive

  1. 1. 300,000 That’s what we need for the 2014 Prajnya 16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence November 25-December 10, 2014
  2. 2. We’ve been doing this since 2008, 2014 with a sabbatical in 2011. 2008 2009 2010 2012 2013
  3. 3. Since 2008, our campaigns have  Reached out to hundreds of people across Chennai through our activities, and even more, online.  Engaged new organisations, communities, individuals and professional groups every year in this work.  Used a variety of media and programme formats to spread awareness, share information and frame discussions on gender violence.
  4. 4. 2008 Just the first year, and we managed:  18 diverse partners, from colleges to industry to retailers to other NGOs.  Workshops, symposium, oratorical and collage contests, theatre training, public lecture and even a poetry reading.  Factboxes, features, op-eds and flyers.
  5. 5. 2009  Public programmes including a Carnatic music concert, and a public forum.  Online activities including a wiki and a new blog.  Dialogues and programmes that linked gender violence with other issues.
  6. 6. 2010  Piloted a safety audit, shared during the public forum.  New partners, including the police, and new issues, including cyber- security.  Outreach to men.
  7. 7. 2012  Ambitious calendar: 16 days, 17 events, 9 of them public, at 14 venues!  Chennai men say NO! videos.  Campaign theme blogposts and blog symposium on literature.
  8. 8. 2013: Deepening awareness  Focus on training and resource creation.  Screenings and discussions, workshops, seminars, blog symposia, info-tweet sets and a film on disability and gender violence.
  9. 9. What do our campaigns achieve?  Open conversations on gender violence where they would not otherwise happen.  Take knowledge about rights and laws to new audiences.  Train people on how to respond to violence, experienced by themselves and others.  Highlight linkages between other social realities and gender violence.  Engage new groups of people every year in working to end the silence and the violence.
  10. 10. With your help, we can continue this work in 2014 The ` 300,000/- we are asking for will cover the following costs that we anticipate:  16 days of programming and activities estimated at ` 10,000/- per day.  The salary of the Campaign Coordinator and the stipend of the Media Associate.  Materials, including handouts that we use.
  11. 11. If we raise ` 300,000/- between April 13 and May 31, 2014, we can enter campaign planning season confident that we have the resources to execute the programmes and activities we want.
  12. 12. The support of individuals is vital to work like ours. Each person who contributes in any way —through money, time, resources, knowledge, networks—is saying, “I share these ideals and I value this work.”
  13. 13. When we count our supporters, we take a census of those who believe that it is time to move towards a violence-free, gender-just world. This is social change. You make it happen with your support.
