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.

Bodhini started as a movement in 2014 against sexual violence and cyber abuse.

what we do

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

Started in as a project of Rotary Cochin Metropolis in 2015 to connect people to available helplines, Bodhini started to expand to fill the need in that space. We were initially working on violence against women and children but realised gender bias has no space in safety issues. So Bodhini became wholesome in dealing with body safety issues, more so related to abuse and sexual violence.

Following the track of online safety issues which came to our attention due to the death of two fifth standard children who were being blackmailed with their photographs, we stepped into the spaces of online safety especially as there was minimal information available for the same.

Also, we have been working on awareness sessions for prevention and empowerment in the spaces of body safety, online safety and healing in schools, colleges and corporates, counselling for victims, creation of resource materials and advocation for policy changes. We have helpline numbers running alongside our short films on YouTube and dedicated numbers for tele-counselling by psychologists. Our resource materials are being used by governments, UNICEF India, law enforcement, in court premises and other NGOs. We also do consultations for governments, UNICEF India, law enforcement and commissions.
