We officially launched Project Raise in December 2014. Project Raise aims at building capacity of 100 organisations across India over a period of 5 years to start engaging boys and men to end violence and discrimination against women and girls.

Project Raise in West BengalHummingbird Raise is phase 1 of this project. It is a collaboration between Equal Community Foundation and the Hummingbird Foundation that aims at building the capacity of 20 organisations based in West Bengal over a period of 3 years to start engaging boys and men to end violence and discrimination against women and girls. Ultimately, the efforts of these organisations to involve men in their work will contribute to the prevention of trafficking of women and girls.

The search and selection process has already started. The support to these 20 organisations will start in July 2015.
