Who We Are
Chhanv Foundation is a Non-Profit Organisation in India working for the rehabilitation of acid attack survivors. Chhanv Foundation raised the unheard voices of acid attack survivors through its campaign Stop Acid Attacks in 2013. We redefined the definition of rehabilitation by advocacy for the acid attacks followed by providing Medical Assistance, Legal Assistance, Education help then at last but not least by providing the Employment at Cafe Sheroes Hangout located in Agra & Lucknow respectively.
We are located in Noida with our Headquarter in Noida Sector 46. The operations, strategy, and co-ordinations are supervised by the Headquarter. The organization is founded by a group of young people mostly from a journalism background and who are also prominent figures in social activism and advocacy in India. The organization is founded by Mr. Alok Dixit, a prominent Social Activist & headed by him as Counselling Director and Mr.Ashish Shukla as Executive Director.
Message from Founder
As the coronavirus rampages around the world, changing societies in unprecedented ways and claiming lives as I write, I am sure you are in one way or other concerned about your loved ones and your community. Many of us are sharing a sense of vulnerability physically, socially or economically. Yet, as activists, it is also reigniting the sense of urgency and meaning to the work we do. In these trying times, I am especially inspired by the positivity, empathy and cooperation of acid attack survivors of Sheroes Hangout towards the people who are in need.
A crisis like COVID19 outbreak presents challenges that touch many areas of the lives of this small community of acid attack survivors. But, by now they haven’t lent themselves to problems, however challenging or daunting, they are the one who has risen from the ashes. They did whatever was possible to support hungry labours when they were walking for miles after the announcement of a month-long lockdown. They helped each other like sisters and brothers, they are spreading love and hope when they are being interviewed or when they are posting messages online. They have been cultivating love by allowing their most vulnerable and powerful sides to be deeply seen and known, recently I have seen them winning hearts of thousands of our social media followers during LIVE shows broadcasted on Sheroes Hangout Instagram page. They did really well, there is no semblance of victimhood in them but they are in dire need of help after the lockdown. They're never so vulnerable than today, so fragile that slightest financial or emotional pressure can break them. Today is the time to return them the love they deserve.
