Abhayanavita on Working With Women and Girls to Step Free of Discrimination and Sexual Violence in India

Feb 13, 2018, 06:53 AM

Abhayanavita has been involved with Triratna as a community since the age of 13. In her early days she learned to face her own difficult past with a fearlessness that is now reflected in her Buddhist name. She also learned to fight back against social injustice and gender discrimination via the Ashvaghosha project, educating people with plays and songs.

These days she continues that work in new ways, working at the Bahujan Hitay Project in her home town of Amravati to run a hostel for vulnerable and abused women, and to help young women and girls step free of domestic and sexual violence, giving them the tools they need to take their future into their own hands.
