A Walk to Create Awareness

Srishti Bakshi, an ISB alumnus from the Co 2011, is on a mission from Kanyakumari to Kashmir to create awareness and support the cause of women's safety and empowerment in India. Srishti is undertaking a 3800 km on-foot journey from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu to Srinagar, Kashmir in India to mobilise communities to make India a safer country for girls and women by empowering them with digital and financial literacy.

During the course of her march, she is focusing on helping women to become financially and digitally literate as she believes technology can be a sustainable and long-term solution for a lot of issues that women face and help them become financially independent too.

She currently averages 25 – 30 kms a day, meeting anywhere between 150 – 200 people a day and follows the walk up with a workshop in the town or village she is passing through. So far 70 workshops have been conducted in educational institutes, rural areas and self-help groups.

The President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, has extended his support to Srishti Bakshi and the CrossBow Miles Campaign for Women’s safety and empowerment through digital and financial literacy.
