Sayfty Self-Care Summit
Sayfty Trust & Villoo Poonawalla Foundation are co-hosting a two-day virtual summit for women (including those who identify as transgender) and other non-binary people in India focussed on “self-care during the COVID-19 pandemic”. The Consulate General Of Canada in Mumbai will co-host Day 2 of the summit with sessions focussed on mental health. Benetton India, and Juicy Chemistry, to assist in providing 100 self-care kits to women working on the front lines during this pandemic.
‘243 million women and girls aged 15-49 have been subjected to sexual and/or physical violence perpetrated by an intimate partner’ in the 12 months preceding the pandemic. (UN Women, 2020). There is a heightened sense of isolation and loneliness. Stay-at-home orders in 2020-21 (to contain the spread of COVID-19) further force vulnerable groups to be isolated with violent partners and unable to access help. Moreover, the pandemic has intensified women's mental health, unpaid care and domestic workloads.

“When it comes to self-care, women often put themselves last. With the pandemic, an increasing number of women, transgender, and other non-binary people are dealing with health worries, restrictions on movement, financial insecurity, and cramped living conditions. Now, more than ever, we as women need to focus on self-care. The summit is a dedicated and safe space for the same”. - Dr. Shruti Kapoor, Founder, Sayfty Trust
