Story

Welcome to the 2022 annual fundraising event: Walk for Women raising money to support disadvantaged women and girls in rural India.

This is an annual event. In 2021 Walk for Women raised £3382!

Considering current circumstances (the aftermath of Covid and an increase in cost of living across the board), and after two very successful virtual walks, where people from all over the world were able to join us; we at Action Village India felt it appropriate to hold a virtual walk again this year. We hope we can come together remotely to enjoy a warm summers day walking and continuing to support women who are in need, and their families.

I have contributed £1251 towards this appeal and I hope, with your support we are able to raise much more.

Thank you, Pallavi - Action Village India Trustee

You can go to the Action Village India ethical gift shop and download a free Walk for Women Support Kit to use on the day and share with your walking companions. This includes:

- a music playlist from Indian female singers

- a small selection of podcasts/interviews on Womens rights in India

- some easy-to-pack Indian recipes from the fabulous Madras Café Cookbook 2 for your end of walk picnic.

The Cause:

Since 2005, every year walkers have been coming together to spend a day walking together to raise funds for helping disadvantaged women in rural India. Last year walkers raised £3382! Thank you all.

Action Village India (AVI) works with local Indian partner organisations with the belief that every man, child and woman in rural India has the right to take control of their lives and prosper in fair, equal and inclusive communities.

Some of the ongoing projects on women and girls rights delivered by AVIs partners include:

Supporting women living with a disability to ensure they know their rights, can access benefits, combat stigma and through Self-Help Groups, are able to save money and access loans.

Supporting girls who would otherwise have dropped out of school due to domestic duties and marriage, to continue their secondary education.

Supporting women to fight for their rights and achieve control over their means of livelihood, in particular their land rights. With over 75% of Indian women working as farmers, and only 13% of them owning their own land, this struggle for land reform is of immense importance to women.
