iDare Vision & Mission

Vision

Create a world where all people have healthier and safer relationships with themselves and with each other.

Mission

Provide an intersectional and holistic solution for abuse  

About Us

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.

What we do?

We are a safe space you can find on your phone!

With it’s 360-degree approach, it ensures that you get the help you need!

Inspire

The lack of information is one of the most significant gaps in fighting against abuse and mental health stigma. Therefore, Inspire brings you a regular dose of curated content and inspiring lived stories of real people that will help you believe in yourself and access empowering resources!

Support

In need of someone who will believe and listen to you without being judgmental and support you unconditionally? That’s what we do! Call or chat with our support team and open up to us. We will work with you to make an action plan to help solve your issue. Whether you need to know how to support a loved one with anxiety, manage stress, or stand up to your abuser, we are here for you.

Engage

If you're looking to make your life easier and health better? We’ve got you covered.

We Provide:

  • Therapy and Life Coaching sessions.
  • Self-defense and Fitness courses.
  • Workshops about various topics such as self-improvement and financial independence.
  • Legal counseling sessions.

We believe that affordability and accessibility shouldn’t be a concern for our community. We bring various field experts under one roof for you; learn healthy ways to nurture yourself and reclaim your power!

Safety

We understand the importance of immediate safe spaces to go to and therefore have a curated list of safe zones providing immediate help in times of crisis. The safe zones offer temporary stays with basic infrastructure and medical facilities. You can also find nearby police stations, metro stations, and service stations in Bangalore here!

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 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.
