Hindustan Zinc’s Sakhi Program Ignites Change with Uthori Campaign, Sensitizing 90,000+ individuals on societal issues

The campaign witnessed a plethora of channels including village drives, group discussions, rallies, and school sessions, effectively creating awareness on pressing concerns such as Domestic Violence, Child Marriage, Female Foeticide, Unequal Education Opportunities, and Child Sexual Abuse. A pivotal aspect of this initiative has been the establishment of a dedicated cadre known as ‘Gender Sakhis’, comprising women equipped to educate their peers and the broader community on these vital matters.

Additionally, an enlightening session on Inclusion in Sports highlighted the transformative power of sports in fostering inclusivity and equal opportunities, both on and off the field.
