Mahindra Rise, an Indian multinational car manufacturing company has taken an initiative to create awareness amongst women in rural India against the Breast Cancer disease.
The incidence of breast cancer is on the rise in rural India. This is not just by a lack of awareness but also the fact that cancer screenings are very low in the priority of things for these rural women.
Also, the reach of media is limited in these remote villages, which is why Mahindra Rise chose a completely new medium to communicate this message – A ‘Batua’, the traditional Indian women’s purse. The campaign remind these women by creating awareness in a way that is discreet and personal, so that checking themselves becomes a habit.
