1 in 5 women experience physical violence in Nepal and 1 in 8 experience sexual violence. SPRING, a business accelerator working in East Africa and South Asia, came to us with a brief to produce a short documentary profile of one of their most recent and successful participants- Fightback.
Fightback is a sexual violence risk reduction education programme for women and girls founded by Vikrant Raj Pandey. It aims to "build critical, mental, vocal and physical skills to prevent, mitigate and manage the risk of sexual violence'".
SPRING is an accelerator working with growth-oriented businesses on innovations that can transform the lives of adolescent girls aged 10-19 living across East Africa and South Asia. They work with world-class experts to support these businesses to create innovations with purpose and commercial potential.
