PARI Launches ‘Changemaker Drive’ to Support Rape Survivors and Raise Awareness with crowdfunding support on Milaap

12 June 2024: The PARI Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting education and rural empowerment, is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative called the ‘Changemaker Drive’. Backed by crowdfunding support from donors on Milaap, the initiative aims to provide comprehensive support to rape survivors and raise awareness about sexual violence. It has set an ambitious goal to train 10,000 youth volunteers who will work towards impacting the lives of at least 100 rape victims across the country.

Through this initiative, the foundation will also offer rape survivors access to essential services, including medical care, counseling, legal assistance, and vocational training, to help them rebuild their lives. Additionally, it will also focus on challenging societal norms and misconceptions that perpetuate sexual violence. By raising awareness and educating communities, the ‘Changemaker Drive’ aims to foster a more supportive and informed society.

“We have witnessed the devastating impact of sexual violence on survivors and their families,” said Yogita, a representative from the PARI Foundation. “In one harrowing case, a 13-year-old girl was gang-raped for seven days, shot, and thrown into a well. Miraculously, she survived, and we took her under our care, helping her heal and find purpose by working with us to support other survivors.”

Despite their efforts, both organizations face significant challenges, including limited resources, difficulties in providing adequate legal and medical support, and the persistent stigma surrounding rape victims.

“Our mission is not only to assist survivors but also to raise awareness and challenge societal norms that perpetuate sexual violence,” Yogita added. “With the ‘Changemaker Drive,’ we aim to empower youth to become agents of change and create a safer, more compassionate society for all.”

Milaap and PARI Foundation are calling on the public to support their mission by contributing to the ‘Changemaker Drive’ and spreading awareness about the importance of addressing sexual violence and supporting survivors. You can support us by making contributions here.
