What is NGAGE?

NGAGE – Next Gen Advocates for Gender Equity is designed for young citizens to understand how one can engage in meaningful dialogue and make conscious efforts in bridging prevalent gender gaps.

At this initiative, young citizens can garner insights from thought-leaders, who have dedicated their efforts towards societal equity, and be reassured that their concerns, opinions and suggestions are heard and that the guidance they seek in solving problems for the future is available at hand.

Sexual Harassment
Why You Should Attend?

Sexual Harassment is perhaps the most hushed, brushed, and accepted form of violence that one experiences.  We don’t talk about it and we don’t do anything about it. Yet – it consumes us – little by little. Hence, this year’s youth forum will focus on sexual harassment in public spaces.

All our work at Durga is about prevention and is about action. We work extensively with youth to build safer spaces for themselves, as youth will need these spaces more and more. The forum will be a space where youth can come and be – come and learn – come and voice – come for change!
