She isn’t helpless. She’s just helped less. Durga is here to change that. Dignity is fundamental to life.
Every woman should be able to draw her boundaries and trust her space.
The Durga family reaches out to the masses and makes your struggles our own.
Durga is a not for profit (80G and 12A) citizen sector organization built to equip women with the essentials required to detect and deter harassment by forging an atmosphere that ignites courage and nurtures capability with an undefeatable spirit. Durga workshops devise interesting methods to help women understand behavior, use their judgement and respond to inappropriate behavior. We implement the influence of theatre to convey the spirit of active deterrence in women.
At Durga, we create a constructive environment where heart to heart dialogues are shared and cold stares are replaced with warm encouragement. Together with men, we discuss and deliberate ways to resolve sexual harassment and further help other women discover their potential in doing so.
The core of Durga is ultimately the woman. We help discover the Durga in you through building the courage and competence required to battle potential situations on an everyday basis and let you put a handle on your own safety. The Durgas we create are the foremost policewomen in their lives and also a pillar of strength for those around them.
Durga believes that the lack of solidarity amongst the general public has been the root cause to the vast sphere of crime, especially towards women. At Durga, we work to translate the underlying attitude from ‘Should I?’ to ‘I should’ thus getting bystanders to actually stand by our cause.
Through our #RealHero initiative we are driving commitment and direction amongst people by recognizing responsible citizens who are keen to help a woman in distress. This is open to both men and women.
A COMMUNITY THAT VOICES OUT ITS SOLIDARITY TOWARDS WOMEN!
Voice communities are created to dignify a woman’s personality through a sense of security. We forge a value enriching community that not only helps discover the Durga in a woman, but also converts passive onlookers into active bystanders. Inculcating respect and empathy in the community, Durga hopes to go a long way in forging a society that enhances the quality of life for women.
VOICE OUT AND BE THE VOICE OF YOUR COMMUNITY
