Today I leave India again. After a whole week in Delhi, with Farida (her first time ever in a flight and in Delhi)! We had a great time with the survivors working in our project, and was amazing to see how connected they feel now! I will write soon about the next steps of Project Três and for now, keep supporting our campaign [link in bio] and making sure we can keep giving fair jobs to these amazing ladies! Love always, Carla. Hoje eu estou indo embora da Índia mais uma vez. Depois de uma semana inteira em Nova Deli, dessa vez com a Farida (foi a primeira vez dela na capital e em um avião)! Nós tivemos dias maravilhosos com as sobreviventes que trabalham no nosso projeto e foi lindo de ver como elas se sentem conectadas agora! Em alguns dias eu vou escrever sobre os próximos passos do nosso projeto, mas por enquanto continuem apoiando a nossa campanha [link na bio] e nos ajudando a mudar a vida dessas mulheres!! #projecttres#womenempowerment#skillsnotscars
Sheroes' Cafe in Agra is a project founded by and for the women of India who are survivors of acid attacks. We were so inspired by meeting Rupa and learning about her story and her road to physical and emotional recovery after her brutal attack at the age of 15 by her stepmother. Through this project, Rupa has gained the confidence and independence to leave home, meet other survivors and activists, build a business as a clothing designer, seek legal justice, and access the surgical care required to reconstruct her face. The courage and resilience shown by the women we met at the cafe moved us to want to help their cause to educate people and improve the treatment of India's women. #india#stopacidattacks#portrait#agra

The Stop Acid Attacks campaign by Chhanv Foundation works to provide sustenance and shelter to acid attack survivors.
They work as a bridge between survivors and the society, as the two come to stand isolated from each other when a person is attacked with acid.
Most significantly, their endeavour is to motivate and strengthen them. To reassure them that confidence can be the spring in their step, and faith can fuel their dreams.
