Raising every boy in India to be gender equitable

There are 230 million men under the age of 18, who currently do not have structured opportunities to study and practise gender equitable behaviour. If we want to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of gender equality, we must include boys in the solutions alongside girls.

Join us to raise Gender Equitable Boys.

Project Raise is a national collaborative of civil society organisations, funding organisations, intermediaries and government institutions who are committed to the social outcome of raising Gender Equitable Boys.


If you want to start or improve your work with boys towards gender equality, then Project Raise is for you. Project Raise provides proven materials, technical support, monitoring and evaluation framework, opportunities to share your work and collective impact.
