Seeing that climate change and education directly ties to gender inequality, Ahona built a platform to address these interconnected issues.
Ahona founded ‘One Action Foundation’ with a team of 20 people, where they are working on 3 issues - climate change, education, and gender inequality. Ahona recognized the intersectionality of social issues and addresses these issues through campaigns, workshops and trainings. They have conducted several “Anti-Smoking Campaigns” through whcih they collected over 50 kgs of cigarette butts and upcycled the waste into new goods while involving a group of women who are traditionally marginalized in the artisan process. They have also conducted self-defence trainings with 30 girls followed by a panel discussion on topics considered taboo.
