About Me:

"Bell Bajao" (Ring the Bell) urges men to take a stand against domestic violence. One out of every three women faces violence behind closed doors, so whether it's ringing a door bell to stop a crime, or speaking out, make sure you're doing your part to ensure women and families in your community are living free of violence. It's about time we stop being silent witnesses.
