Joining the Movement

How to get Involved

You are an important part of the movement and we need your help to reach more people. There are several ways to get involved in our cause:

Break the news about the movement to your friends and family: start by drawing their attention to the problem of violence against women and girls and encourage them to join the movement.

Paint your index finger orange at the designated locations:
Díli: Microlete and outdoor in Rua D. Fernando next to Pateo.

Spread the word through digital activism: download our sticker and gifs packs and share them with your friends and family;

Join the competition “Painting a New World”: create art with your fingers to inspire the movement. It can be a painting, a poster or even a poem. See the competition guidelines;

Walk the talk with us: help us draw the attention of Timorese leaders and the entire population to gender-based violence by joining our march.
