Domestic Violence Shelters

This program includes a Short-stay Home for women who are victims of domestic abuse and other gender based violence. The Home provides a safe place for a period of up to 3 years and in this time the women are provided psychological support, recreational activities, along with skill-building opportunities. Efforts are also made to negotiate with their families.

This program is run in collaboration with the Central Social Welfare Board under the Ministry of Women and Child Development.

Our Programs


“The children are very happy to see the fan and bulb. Many of these children had never seen these, so they are very excited. Earlier, when children used to sleep, they were disturbed by flies and mosquitoes, but now they are able to sleep peacefully.”

The Sanchalika (teacher) of Sagwara Village

“A big relief for me because in summers we used to get water from the hand pump and bathe children, so that they could sleep. With fan in the Balwadi, children will be able to sleep with ease.”
