#IWONTIGNORE Banner.png

"Victims of sexual abuse get blamed, are unfairly labelled and worst, they're told to ignore what has happened. Their freedom and respect is further compromised at the hands of family and society. We want to tell everyone to stop ignoring the injustice and instead empower us by making us feel heard and supported", said these 4 young change makers from Dharavi when asked what needs to be addressed in their community while discussing sexual harassment and what they would like to address through their film.

RB Leadership Programme (June-Sept. 2020)

"Art can create major impact and most importantly

influence, persuade and move people to lead change."

"Sustainable social change begins with individual &

collective experience of empathy & self awareness."

"Young people must step out of their cocoons to connect with others & understand social issues confronting us all."

The need for these dialogues, opportunities and

experiences for young people.
