Arré Voice has announced its partnership with Akshara Centre to support and contribute to the cause of women’s safety. 
 
With this partnership, the voice podcast app aims to encourage women to speak out about cases of domestic violence – which could range from emotional to physical to even financial abuse – which has been on the rise, especially during and after the pandemic. 
 
To ensure that awareness is created of women’s safety, a tech-enabled intervention is planned to allow women to access helplines and support groups through the app.
 
Niyati Merchant, co-founder and chief operating officer, Arré Voice, said, “As a women-first audio social platform, we wish to provide women part of the growing Arré Voice community, access to content and tools aimed at creating a safe social space. This is an ever-evolving endeavour for us, based on real-time community feedback and enabled through tech-led interventions. Akshara Centre has been actively working towards educating young men and women towards creating a society that allows for a dignified, violence-free life for women. Through this partnership, we hope to extend these initiatives to our users.”
 
Nandita Shah, co-founder, Akshara Centre, said “We are so proud to be associated with Arré Voice. At Akshara Centre, we are trying to build an ‘in person’ platform for young women to not only share issues and problems but also share strategies to combat difficulties as a woman and for us, this partnership with Arré Voice is an extension of the same online i.e., giving a voice, building bonds and creating networks. We are sure that the online platform will scale the conversation exponentially.”
