Aks Foundation endeavors to provide compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by gender based violence (domestic violence, sexual abuse and harassment) while partnering with the community to promote safety, awareness and prevention.
Aks is currently working with PMC/PCMC schools to spread awareness about gender, gender stereotypes, personal safety, and consent. Workshops are conducted for 6th to 10th grade over a month to sensitize children to issues of internalized sexism and the aim is to create a generation of students who are aware about gender issues.
