Who’s your Shero!

‘Who’s your Shero’ was a writing event organized by the Prajnya Trust’s Education for Peace Initiative, during the 16 Days Campaign against Gender Violence in December 2010.

The event involved 6th grade students from various city schools who sent in their essays on the topic, honoring women who made a difference at the community, local or national/international levels.  There were essays commemorating women from all walks of life that truly showcased the strength of women.

The final event  was held at Besant Arundale Senior Secondary School on December 4th where 24 finalists read out their essays in front of their peers and an eminent panel and were awarded certificates of merit. The six finalists, three each for English and Tamil, received additional certificates to recognize their work. All the children who participated  received participation certificates.
