ABOUT THE PARTNER PROJECT
Founded in 1990, this NGO’s mission is to address issues of women and girls through educational programmes, resource creation, research, training, campaigns, networking and advocacy. Its specific area of work is the empowerment of girls from deprived communities. Their goal is establishing a gender just society in context of poverty and orthodox mind sets, and to to create a world without exploitation, oppression, discrimination and injustice against women, girls or any other section of society.
The focus will be documenting this NGO’s work based in 17 various project sites in the Mumbai area and neighbouring Thane District. It will involve photographing and/or capturing video footage of the various outreach and education programmes for more than 1100 youth.
