Gender Awareness Promoters (GAP)2014 has been a busy year all round. A group of five friends got together to form Gender Awareness Promoters (GAP) to raise awareness around gender issues among school and college students. We have been to several schools in Chennai and had interesting interactions with the kids. It was wonderful to see the sense of revelation in the eyes of some of those children. Our talks resonated with the children, specially the girls.
We started a blog to share and write about our experiences - equalgenderpro.tumblr.com/. Some of our early experiences are recorded here.
Later we moved the blog to Wordpress, so that we could use it better for longer articles and stuff - https://equalgenderpro.wordpress.com/
