About us

Why the need

Born from care, driven by hope.

Some shocking statistics state that online abuse had increased by 5000% in the decade until 2015. National crime records bureau, India reported 1322 cases of cyber crimes in 2010 and the numbers escalated to 44546 in 2019.

what we do

The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

Started as a project of the Rotary Club of Cochin Metropolis in 2015, Bodhini evolved into Bodhini Metropolis Charitable Trust, a trust that is currently working in the areas of online safety, body safety for children and healing, predominantly in the spaces of sexual violence.

Bodhini believes that empowering individuals, with the knowledge of safety rules and with the courage to never give into threats, is the best bet to keeping them safe, thus working in the spaces of preventive awareness and empowerment by creating awareness sessions through schools, colleges and other institutions. Bodhini strongly believes that life should never be defined by fear or threat and that each person deserves to heal and move on to better spaces.

In addition to the different modules that we deliver through our sessions, we have also developed resource materials that empower and help individuals to heal. We, at Bodhini, were able to fill part of the void in the space of online safety awareness and rules. This came to our attention when two children in Class V took their lives as a result of the blackmail faced by them online. Bodhini’s biggest accomplishment is the positive change brought about in each individual, child and adult after our sessions, which can also be seen in the trust they show us in asking questions, no matter how sensitive a situation they may happen to be and when they reach out to us in trouble. Additionally, Bodhini has helplines in the space of online safety and provides counselling support to individuals and their families. We also work towards the creation of resource materials and advocate for policy changes. Our resource materials are being used by governments, UNICEF India, the law enforcement agencies and other NGOs, and are also being displayed in court premises. We also do consultations for governments, UNICEF India, the law enforcement and various commissions.

Our strengths lie in tapping on positivity, healing, forgiveness and gratitude. Life is too beautiful to be defined by anything ugly that happened in life. Heal and move on to beautiful spaces ahead. Living well is the best gift you can give yourself.

In freedom from fear and love and healing energies 💕
