Imagine, You feel great about yourself, but when you look downYour body is the opposite sex,from whom you know yourself to be. Imagine what it would feelto live in a discrepancy like that.
This Action Learning Saturday, we come closer to witness an identity living in our society but always hidden, always kept on the edges. We take out time to understand the Transgender community closely and create a space of interaction for a few hours with empathy.The idea is to break our stereotypes about the Transgender Community and create a space of equality in our everyday life during the encounter with them whether it is at a red light or in a train station. We believe these are the people who live a life of courage to express who they really are and it is important to listen to their voices and stories of courage.We would be visiting Pahal, a not-for-profit who under Project Astitva, are empowering transgenders. They work intensively on their identity, improving their livelihood, building access to health care facilities for them and creating role models within the community by promoting and creating opportunities for entrepreneurship and jobs with dignity.The interaction will be enriched by open conversations, stories, and activities with community members.
