What is the campaign about?

‘OrangeItUp’ will be a week long campaign in October( 3rd week, tentatively) organized across colleges with the aim of creating awareness about fight against gender based violence. The campaign will be focused on activities such as debate, theater performances, story-telling sessions, photo-booth and campaigns that encourage people to endorse colour ‘Orange’ as a symbol towards the fight against gender based violence.

The IBMS approach focusses on both men and women. While we want women to break their silence, we also want men to break theirs by being proactive and not tolerating discrimination that they witness.The project also encourages bystanders to intervene safely in such situations.  Apart from the story-sharing platform, our team also conducts awareness drives and workshops with schools, colleges and other institutions.
