Helping build a new generation of people and individuals who are able to look beyond gender diversity, norms and stereotypes is what Aks Foundation is devoted to. To help achieve our vision every year Aks Foundation, Pune has an event not only to raise funds for survivors of abuse but also to create awareness around sexual abuse. Our fundraiser draws inspiration from the International Event Take Back The Night (TBTN).
Hundreds of events are held in over 30 countries annually in the month of April. Events often include marches, rallies and vigils intended as a protest and collectively direct action against rape and other forms of sexual abuse and domestic violence. The first Aks TBTN was held on 26th April, 2009 and so far we have successfully organised 11 fundraisers with different themes every year.on.org
