Create a world where all people have healthier and safer relationships with themselves and with each other.
Provide an intersectional and holistic solution for abuse
iDare is India’s first holistic and intersectional mobile application that helps people recognize, prevent, cope with, and fight against abuse. It helps cope with the trauma we survive, heal from our pains, unlearn unhealthy patterns, and learn to replace them with healthier ones. iDare prioritizes the values of kindness, empathy, and collectivity to build a safe and secure space where wellness thrives.
iDare begins as DARE (Defense Against Rape and Eve-Teasing) in 2015.
DARE continues to create safe-spaces and provide self-defense training to 9,00,000 girls and women across India.
DARE’s post-workshop counseling sessions stun us with many cases of sexual violence and some important insights.
DARE’s crucial experiences and bottlenecks give birth to iDare.

Felt really better, never ever experienced calling a stranger at 9.30 in the night and talking about myself:)
She was the sweetest, most supportive and an amazing listener! And gave really good solutions to my problems! Will forever be grateful for her! <3 Thanks so much to her
Very respectful and thoughtful, felt safe to open up to her and am encouraged that she will help me to address my mental health concerns.
I feel so relieved and at ease after discussing my thoughts. I thought I probably don't need this, but as soon as the session started, I patted myself mentally saying you did the right thing. The session was like magic for me. I feel lighter and better equipped. I am excited to start this journey and work on myself and come out better. Thank you. :)
I had a positive first time experience. I feel assured that I am in good hands and that I will benefit from therapy
They really gave me hope and made me feel like it’s okay to make mistakes and I can overcome that and become a better person just by working on myself. Thank you so much Sneha :)
I feel very comfortable with my therapist. It is easier to share my thoughts. Also the exercises we do during sessions help me know insights about my issues. They are very helpful.
Had a great experience since I’m slowly getting a better understanding of my thoughts. Have received information on new tools and exercises to try out, so excited to see how the journey goes.
Felt very light after sharing the thoughts which I kept holding on for too long. Really appreciate that sakshi checked up on me randomly. Feeling so grateful!!! Thankyou!
