CAMPAIGNS

During the last 2 years of the pandemic, ‘The Tale of Humankind’ initiative launched by Aniket and Seher has campaigns on diverse issues such as Mental Health, Menstruation, Gender Equality, Human Rights, Power of Youth, Child Rights, Climate Action, UN Sustainable Development Goals, Global Citizenship, Education in COVID, etc. These include:

#OurRightsCampaign

A 30-days project #OurRightsCampaign" to create awareness about 30 Human Rights in simple language that is vital for creating a culture of human rights and it reached thousands of people globally. Apart from sharing the glaring statistics and making the youth aware of the facts, Tale of Humankind even engaged them daily through interactive questions to grow together with sharing of views and ideas.

#Stigma2Strength

As has been rightly said, ‘When you educate a woman, you educate a generation,’ it is essential to build inclusivity in our society and destigmatize menstruation. With this in mind, ‘The Tale of Humankind’ hosted a conversation #Stigma2Strength and collaborated with Sayfty to amplify the need for normalizing discussion on Menstruation.

BE MORE YOU

Using the power of stories to heal mental health issues that became very much prevalent during the pandemic, Aniket and Seher brought the spotlight on stories of 6 Mental Health Warriors and shared them with the world. The stories told the tale of how these mental health warriors faced difficult challenges and came out stronger than before.

Youth for Mental Health

To normalize talks about Mental Health and highlight the importance of positive psychology, the duo shared a series of 7 movies on the theme,” Youth For Mental Health"  in support of the #SameHere movement. They also invited Experts and Youth Advocates of this field to answer some of the most common questions and help break the stigma and myths related to Mental Health especially during the COVID times which has taken a toll on the overall psychological and mental well being of students.

Towards a greener
world

 

To develop a culture of empathy for the environment among students from early childhood itself, Aniket and Seher launched a campaign titled ‘Towards a Green World’.The campaign was kick-started by hosting a global quiz on World Environment Day that developed a basic understanding of environment, climate & sustainable development. Later, to accelerate this on a pan-India scale, they started a petition on Change.org to demand from the government to include climate education in school curriculum. This has received support from many environmentalists such as Dia Mirza, Renowned Actress & UNEP Ambassador; Tejaswini Manogna, Miss Earth India; and more.

Young Changemaker Series

It is rightly said, “The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.” The Tale of Humankind collaborated with Save the Children, India, to highlight 10 stories of unsung change makers who are working in their own ways to help the society and their work deserves to be showcased and appreciated. Even with limited means, they never fail to fight the hindrances in their way and stay determined towards their goals. Aniket and Seher interviewed these change makers and their work went on to inspire many others.

SDG Lensation

 It is rightly said that Photography is an austere and blazing poetry of the real. With this in mind, Aniket and Seher used the magic of photography to create awareness about United Nations Sustainable Development Goals where students clicked photographs that represented different goals such as No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy, etc. This invited large scale participation with about 700 entries from across the globe. Vicky Roy, a celebrated photographer joined them to judge the entries & to create a handbook for school students to understand SDGs through photographs.
