About the Breakthrough
Breakthrough Trust in partnership with L’Oréal Paris started the bystander intervention program Stand-Up in Lucknow and Delhi-NCR.
Breakthrough is an organization with a mission to make violence and discrimination against women and girls unacceptable by building a generation of gender-sensitive adolescents and young adults.
About the Event
Violence and discrimination against women and girls in India have been increasing day by day. Women are being subjected to discrimination and violence at home, in public spaces as well as the workplace. According to the NCRB-2018 report, around 3.78 lakh cases of crime have been registered against women across the country. Owing to these factors, a significant number of our population feels unsafe both in private as well as public spaces.
This program is designed to encourage people to break the silence and intervene in Sexual harassment to create a world wherein every individual can live a life with dignity, equality, and justice.
