We’re creating a library of resources: inclusive of manuals, games, research studies and data sets to address the knowledge gap on key social issues and build innovative learning and knowledge sharing tools for larger impact.

#OneFutureInspire

One Future Inspire is a continuing series of interviews with young people across countries, borders, spectrums of work and being. These people share a common quality — they inspire us. Our aim is to bring their work to the fore with the hope that it might ignite a spark in someone, somewhere.

LGBTQIA+ How to be a Great Ally Manual 

An ally is a person who is a member of the dominant group who works to end oppression in his or her own personal and professional life by supporting and advocating with the oppressed population. Being a great ally in India becomes particularly important because of the widespread stigma and dehumanisation of queer persons. This also means that parental acceptance is generally low, leaving queer millennials to seek support mainly from each other and their allies. This manual is meant to serve as an introductory guide for allies to learn how to be better, and great allies.

LGBTQIA+ Myths & Facts E-Book  

Most queer lives in India are dented by the negative stereotypes surrounding the community and each identity. Allowing them to entirely shape the course of our journeys would be a grave injustice to the ones who will come after us – where we fail to leave a world behind which is a lot kinder to them. This e-book will help you debunk the most common myths surrounding homosexuality, bisexuality, trans people, asexuality, non-binary identities, intersex people and other misconceptions related to gender and sexuality. We have tried our best to be as inclusive as possible.

Self Care for Caregivers Manual  

In India, and in the world, society places great emphasis on caring for others—family, friends, those less privileged than us. Caregiving is work. Once we acknowledge this, we see a dangerous, lesser spoken of effect of caregiving: forgetting to take care of ourselves. Caregiving takes a physical, mental, and emotional toll on people—one not often spoken about. The health of caregivers is important, and should not be ignored. We want to fix this. The manual on ‘Self-care for Caregivers’ gives our readers the 101 on caregiving—definitions, signs of burnout while taking care of others, a self-care plan—we’ve got you covered.

Feminist Justice: A Book of Haikus

‘Feminist Justice: A Book of Haikus’ is a collection of poems co-created on the 17 August 2019 at the soft launch of our FemJustice Legal Centre in Mumbai. On this occasion, the audience was asked to co-write Haikus about their idea of gender justice, gender-based violence and feminism with a general structure of one person writing one line before passing it on to a stranger. We have chosen to share some we found most striking with you through this booklet.
