Chennai, November 2019: Leading legal-tech, tax and compliance services company, “Vakilsearch”, launched an exemplary CSR initiative “iAdvocate”. Powered by Vakilsearch, “iAdvocate” allowed people to champion against causes such as violence, sexual harassment, human trafficking, honour killing, the safety of girl children, just to name a few.
The month-long social media campaign, iAdvocate, encouraged people to participate by voicing out any cause that is close to their heart and inviting two friends to do the same on their social
media handles. As a result, Vakilsearch identified “Women empowerment” as the cause that garnered the highest number of supporters.
In line with this, Vakilsearch collaborated with Women of Worth (WOW), Chennai and donated day-to-day and infrastructural essentials to girl children under their care. Women of Worth (WOW) passionately cater to these girl children from troubled backgrounds through their aftercare program. Through which, they empower, rehabilitate and give them a new lease of life.
Speaking about this initiative, Hrishikesh Datar, CEO, Vakilsearch says, “ We as individuals and businesses should be aware of the social issues around us and being in the legal sector we find it imperative to address issues faced by different sections of the society. Through this campaign, we believe that the topic which is of highest priority in the society is given its due attention. This is just the beginning of bigger campaigns that we will line up in future.”
Kavitha Emmanuel, Founder & Director of Women of Worth said, “There is no denying that women’s empowerment begins with their safety. Women of Worth has been doing our bit to
raise the bar on women’s safety since the launch of our Girl Arise campaign in 2014 throughworkshops and awareness campaigns against female foeticide, child sexual abuse, humantrafficking, sexual harassment and more. We welcome this partnership with Vakilsearch to scale
up what has been initiated. We look forward to more such collaborations in the future withVakilsearch under iAdvocate initiative.’’
