Stop Acid Attacks
Stop Acid Attacks (SAA) is a campaign against acid violence in India. It serves as a bridge between survivors and society as most of the victims of this brutal crime have isolated themselves after being attacked. Due to ignorance of the government and civil society, most survivors find no hope and often live in solitude. SAA aims to research and track acid attack cases and compile data to get the actual situation of survivors. One of the results of this campaign is a cafe called "Sheroes‘ Hangout" in Agra, the city famous for the Taj Mahal. The cafe is run by acid attack victims and has given them financial and social independence.
