Support our shelter providing safety and support for up to 30 women (and their children) fleeing violence.


    Violence against women has become a prominant topic in India in recent years affecting 70% of India's women. We strive to help women find a safe exit point from the gender based murder, abuse and neglect that occurs. Our refuge afford women a sanctuary in a crisis for them and their children and actively prevents dowry death, honour killings, physical and sexual crimes and abuse through neglect.
