Event: Adhya, An Initiative For Safety Of Women And Children


Adhya Event

After every case of atrocities on women, people come together, light some candles and flood their social media accounts with sympathy/ anger updates! But this won’t help if it’s not a continuous process. Amendments in law are not enough, women have to empower themselves. To highlight such issues, ‘Adhya’, an event with an aim to help women and children to be vigilant & safe in the place where they live has been organized tomorrow, 17th March 2013 at Powai.

About Adhya
Adhya means a new beginning or first creator, the role which women play in our lives. Adhya is a brainchild of Powai residents Karishma Sharma & Shivani Thakkar. This event will target the issues of rape, sexual harassment and child molestation. This is an initiative to make people aware about these important issues in society.

“A single being may not be able to change the mindset of the human race but certainly one small stone thrown inside the ocean can cause a few ripples. Increasing number of cases against women & kids has led to desensitization. Awareness about these issues is the most important aspect for individual safety.” said, Karishma Sharma, founder of Adhya.
Adhya will provide a platform for various NGO’s such as Kranti, Arpan, Urmi, We The People Foundation, Majlis, Think beyond, Mimaansa and G.O.D.S, to illustrate their services towards society.
To promote the main event, team of Adhya performed freeze mobs all over Hiranandani, Powai which have been appreciated by the viewers.
