UNESCO Chair in Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment Recognized for #OrangetheWorld Campaign
UN Women and partners around the world participated in 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence (25 November – 10 December) under the theme of ‘Orange the World: Raise Money to End Violence against Women and Girls’. Our UNESCO Chair in Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment at the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, along with AMMACHI Labs, galvanized many communities of women and men from our villages to record short video messages. Several participants recorded inspiring messages for social media that denounced gender based violence and called for unity and activism. After 16 Days of campaigning, their voices were heard and their messages travelled around the world!
UNESCO New Delhi formally acknowledged these efforts by sending a letter of commendation to Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham for the inspiring messages and the completion of a very successful campaign.
