Making Mumbai: Promoting inclusiveness with community-led self-reflection activities  

Godrej Salon-i along with Youth for Unity and Voluntary Action (YUVA) organised ‘Making Mumbai’, a city level campaign to engage with youth on development, identity, and citizenship. The objective was to encourage the idea of creating an inclusive city with active youth participation. A Salon-i stall was installed to organise various activities with the girls including beauty oriented events, the projection of life skills posters, and self-reflective activities on menstrual hygiene management.

The stall also displayed amazing craftwork by the girls as they made the simplest designs with the help of applique work and patchwork sewn into cloth pieces. They sent out a message loud and clear about sexual harassment, rape, molestation, and eve teasing. As a takeaway, women were given a small token in the form of period bracelets. These bracelets were made by them using colourful beads indicating the days in a cycle.
