Normalize Nahi Act Karo

(Signature campaign 16 days of activism on gender based violence)

Location: University of lucknow

During the 16 Days of Activism campaign, YES Foundation organized a powerful signature campaign at the University of Lucknow to raise awareness about the social evil of Gender-Based Violence (GBV). The primary objective was to empower youth to speak up against GBV and initiate active conversations to break the normalization of these acts of violence.

The campaign aimed to directly engage and enhance the awareness of at least 300 students. It was strategically held from 12 PM to 2 PM, ensuring maximum student participation. Recognizing that both perpetrators and victims of GBV are often young individuals, fostering conversations on this crucial topic was paramount to the program's success.

Volunteers engaged in one-on-one discussions with university students, focusing on the issue of GBV. Additionally, VoxPoc sessions and a Poster March were conducted to amplify the message. The result was overwhelming, with more than 450 students actively signing their commitment to perpetually fight against gender-based violence.

This initiative by YES Foundation sparked a wave of awareness and activism, encouraging students to take a stand against GBV and actively contribute to building a safer society. The signature campaign served as a powerful reminder that together, we can create a world free from gender-based violence.


Satrangi Samaaj

Focused on gender and identities, the initiative aimed to foster a perspective shift in the audience's acceptance of the LGBTQ community and break societal norms surrounding gender.

Nukkad Natak, known for capturing the attention of bystanders, served as a powerful medium to convey the message. By going beyond the binary notions of male and female, the performance challenged gender norms and promoted inclusivity. The chosen locations, the University of Lucknow and Clock Tower, strategically ensured maximum outreach with an estimated direct audience of 1000 people.

The event was executed successfully, with the natak captivating the audience and sparking discussions. Throughout the day, we received appreciation and thought-provoking questions from attendees, indicating the effectiveness of the message conveyed. The event concluded at five in the evening, leaving a lasting impact on both participants and observers.
