Raising awareness on Sustainable Development Goals

Celebrating 24th July as the World Merit Day to spread awareness about Sustainable Development Goals, Womenite took to Raahgiri, CP to spread awareness over the issue of Gender Equality, Education, Poverty, Health and other SDGs listed by UN. The event commenced with a freeze mob followed by a voluntarily drive for the people to come forward and put their hand impressions in support of Sustainable Development Goals. Alongside, we had a band performing beautiful songs, all based upon the theme of gender equality and other societal issues. The crowd found the entire event both a fun as well as a good awareness experience, with people coming forward in large numbers to support the noble cause undertaken. Out of 250+ events in 50+ countries, we were the co-winners in the whole world.
