Our programmes contribute to creating a gender-equal world, online and on ground. We work at the intersection of gender, sexuality, and technology to enable women and gender and sexual minorities to build their capacity, knowledge, networks, and voice.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve achieved over the last five years.
Lives touched on the ground
Gender & Technology
SexGenderTech looks at digital technologies through a feminst lens, exploring how technology shapes gender – and vice versa. We conduct workshops with people from marginalised communities, students, and grassroots activists. Our pathbreaking publications study the interplay of gender and tech. We advocate for more just policies around technology, and network with other organisations working on these issues across the globe.

Sexuality & Disability
This pioneering programme looks at disability through the lens of gender and sexuality. We start with the premise that women and queer people with disabilities are sexual beings, just like anyone else.
Our programme encompasses workshops, curricula, film screenings, publications, information resources, and social media campaigns that identify and bust myths surrounding disability, sexuality, desire, love, and relationships. A dedicated website offers answers to common questions from people with disabilities.
Our Digital Storytelling programme aims to address the inequity of voice by enabling women, girls, and marginalised genders to tell their own stories. Our workshops put simple yet powerful storytelling tools in the hands of those who have not had the means or power to tell their own stories. Since 2015 we have worked with community-based organisations in states such as Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, and Maharashtra. In 2020, we joined 75 community groups in these states to launch the #MissingVoices campaign across social media to amplify the voices of adolescent girls on the age of marriage and related issues.
I helped my employer’s children to attend online classes during COVID. I receive a lot of appreciation from my employer, my family, and my community members for being digitally independent, which motivates me and boosts my confidence.
