  • Pilot of Gali Band (Stop Verbal Abuse) Module

    SAMYAK has initiated a process of developing a training manual for boys in grade 8 and 9 (age 14 and 15 years). It contains six interactive sessions developed in wider consultation and participation of school counsellors, a practicing psychologist, representatives of women’s movement and gender experts. The draft of this module is prepared by SAMYAK and it is being piloted in 5 Municipal Corporation Public Schools in Pune and two urban slums in the city. This initiative is inspired by MASVAW (Men’s Action to Stop Violence Against Women) campaign in Uttar Pradesh on stopping verbal abuse.
