Bharatiya Streeshakti is a not-for-profit organization that painstakingly strives to uphold women’s rights. They wished to stop the menace of domestic violence by encouraging women to report abuse, which due to impending social stigma was never reported. Following the “If we don’t know, we can’t help” theory, the idea was to dramatically bring this hidden issue out into the open and let these abused women know that the NGO was there for them.
LET THE PAIN OUT! A simple idea printed on vinyl and pasted on walls of residential buildings drove home the point in the most economical yet powerful manner. Crowds gathered stunned at first, only to realize the gravity of the message.
‘Domestic violence needs a voice. Yours.’ These posters with contact details were then distributed.
Aseema, an NGO, wanted to promote the cause of educating street children. With a negligible promotional budget, the challenge was to get affluent citizens of Mumbai who are largely apathetic to this need, to take notice. If the idea strikes a chord, they would act.
The ubiquitous storm drain was transformed into an abacus! Not only did the idea get traction but it was also awarded with a WPPed Cream Silver by WPP London.
