Shelter for Women-Survivors of Domestic Violence

Nov 17, 2011

Final report

Our idea for the Shelter Home for Women Survivors of Domestic Violence was conceived a few months ago when we realised at Sambhali Trust the need for a place for women who suffer from domestic abuse and have no place to go.  We feel it is a very important project to be able to start in Jodhpur and since this project was created on Global Giving in August 2011, we have only received $35 and so have been unable to start it.  However, because we feel strongly that this is a desperately needed form of support for these women and it links with the Trust’s main aim of Women’s Empowerment, we are looking elsewhere for funding.  We are hopeful that we might succeed elsewhere and so have this project up and running in a few months.  Therefore, for this reason we are deactivating the Shelter Home Project from Global Giving.  We have already contacted the two donors who have very kindly supported this project and asked them if they are happy with the money being kept for this Shelter Home project until we are able to start it, or whether they would rather their money go into the Empowerment Project for Women, the alternative project of Sambhali Trust on the Global Giving website.  We are very grateful to all our donors for their generous support in both projects, which is helping to make such a difference to the lives of the women and girls in Jodhpur and Setrawa in Rajasthan.
