The GIA Story

Nirbhaya incident on 16 December 2012 shook the conscience of the society and the nation as a whole. The hard reality of the helplessness of a young, professional, educated, modern woman even in a metropolitan city and that too in Delhi, that is, the heart of India was exposed. The problem was multipronged. Hence, the solution had to go beyond the analysis of the problem alone. It had to include and aim at finding a comprehensive strategy to provide women a safer place to grow up in.

We a group of socially active, professional women were perturbed by these events and wanted to contribute our time, energy and expertise towards the benefit of the womenfolk and the society at large.
