Merry Christmas everyone ! We've just pushed out our crowdfunding campaign for our work with survivors of violence- Over the last 2 years, many kinds of survivors have participated in our projects with powerful results, and we plan to work with low income survivors in Delhi over the next year to really further develop and amplify that work. We're seeking contributions for our work with 40 survivors, of which 30 will be from low-income communities of Delhi.. please contribute, support, share and spread the word!
