In 2020, Maitri Network organised online and offline workshops on theme of Pandemic within Pandemic: Ending violence against Women, to highlight the issues of increasing violence against women during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our partner organisations advocated with various government departments to effectively respond to issues of violence against women and provide justice.
In 2019, National Level Campaign on Prevention of Sexual Harassment with Women at Workplace addressed the issue of sexual harassment and also focused on harassment with women in the informal sector. Rallies and workshops were conducted to raise awareness in various parts of the country.
The campaign in 2018 focused on Prevention of Child Marriages; Maitri Partners reached out to government departments, gram panchayats, schools, colleges and raised the issue of child marriage and its effect on children, especially girls and their families. The aspect of girl education was emphasised upon by network partners during the campaign and collaborations were established with various stakeholders
In 2017, Maitri Network organised a national level campaign called ‘Engaging Men and Boys’. Campaign focused on conducting sensitization workshops with men and boys in various communities for behavioral changes. As an outcome, a number of men and boys came forward to support women in their household and neighborhood and advocated for issues related to prevention of gender based violence.
