Roshan Dilli - A Campaign To Light Up Public Spaces In Delhi And Make The City Safer For Women

Learning Judo For Self-Defence, Leading To Medals

With gender violence on the rise, self-defence for girls and women has become more imperative than ever. As part of the Uber-NDTV Roshan Dilli campaign, we are trying to raise the safety standards of the national capital. The Vidyapeeth school project is at the core of Literacy India, wherein it not only focuses on bringing education to the underprivileged but also encourages self-defence training. The girls are not only more confident and secure but are now playing at various competitive levels.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
