16 December, 2012. Nirbhaya. You sat up at night reading about it, numb. You cried.

You got angry. You wished there was something you could do. To make your city safe.

That night haunts you. When you ride the cab alone at night. When a loved one walks back home. When you set a 7 pm curfew for your teenager.

Women's security and empowerment is still a point of concern in India. Despite a rising number of cases of violence and discrimination against women, nothing ever seems to change. We know there is a growing sense of helplessness and frustration among people that no matter what they do, it will have no impact and no one will care.

And you wonder again if there’s anything at all that you can do.

Team Change - a new initiative of Breakthrough - believes you can make a difference, and we are hoping that you will join this passionate group of people who are committed to bringing change. Since change starts with us, we are asking you to make a donation to Team Change today or to start your own fundraiser.

When you donate to Breakthrough, we work with families, boys, girls and communities. HOW ? Through 2-year gender sensitisation programmes in government schools with children in 6th to 8th standard and community interactions to change mindsets so that everyone around ensures that girls are safe to live their lives freely, without fear of harassment. We believe that the root of this problem lies in the mind – until women are treated as equals and respected, no improvement can happen.

When you make a gift to Team Change, you create a tiny piece of change. A 14-year-old stands up to her family and says she wants to study, not marry. A mother tells her son her story of sexual violence. A father sets a new tradition in his village by celebrating the birth of his daughter with much fanfare. All of this being enabled by Breakthrough programmes, working tirelessly to create a new, more equal reality for women and girls.

Change happens because of the choice you make at this moment. You've chosen – to not wait for change, but to make it happen. You've chosen – to take action for the rights for girls everywhere, to an education, to safety, to a living, to life.

And in the months to come, we will take you through the work we do on the ground to make change happen. We will show you how you can be involved, in your own special way. Change is a choice you make today. And when change comes, you can be proud that you played a part in bringing it home.
