Team Enactus Ramjas recently organised a free hugs campaign in Connaught Place as part of the ongoing Transgender Awareness Week.
The first ever Transgender Free Hugs campaign was a well received with 626 hugs collected in a span of 40 minutes.
More than the numbers, it was the enthusiasm of the transgender community members and other participants that made the event a success and gave rise to hope of a brighter and more inclusive future for transgenders in India. The event was a brainchild of Team Transcreations of Enactus Ramjas.
There is a bigger campaign in the works that will be undertaken in the coming few months. The team’s aim is to sensitise people and spread awareness about the plight of transgenders.
