Kadam Badhate Chalo

Kadam Badhate Chalo (KBC) is a youth-led program implemented by the Martha Farrell Foundation (MFF) and the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA). It is designed with the assumption that the root of ending violence against women and girls lies in changing gender relations between men and women, boys and girls, and this cannot be done without the active and equal participation of youth, both boys and girls. KBC empowers and educates youth to assist them in taking leadership within their own communities to address violence against women and girls.

PSD has partnered with PRIA and MFF to use specific sports interventions within the KBC framework to facilitate interaction between girls and boys, build trust between girls and boys, subtly question gender stereotypes, build leadership capability, challenge perceptions of violence against girls and women, as well as equip youth with values of equality, teamwork, effective communication, camaraderie and respect, to help them become leaders within their own communities in tackling issues of violence against women and girls.

During KBC 1.0 in 2016-17, PSD’s direct outreach through sports-based workshops and camps across 12 locations in 7 states in India was a total of 2,174 youth (49% Girls).

During KBC 2.0 currently being implemented across 4 locations in 3 states, PSD’s direct outreach through sports-based workshops and camps has been a total of 468 youth (54% Girls).
