Challenge

incessant globalisation made society take psychological distance from poor women, victimise and forget them. ignore if violated. Women as garbage worker, sex workers, rape victims and HIV+ women are forced to fend for themselves and their children when they have no support from community and family. seen as wasted, they and their children are exploited,in all possible manners. In mumbai of india, we have selected such a slums where above mentioned women come to live as a last resort to survive.

Solution

we help poor women victimised by patriarchy and extremely stigmatised by society, to mainstreamised themselves through 1.entrereneurship program, 2.community participation program 3. financial inclusion, and through 4.legal awarenes. Sanmitra trust has successfully helped more than 1000 such direct victim, stigmatised women of above mentioned groups, since 1998. we have vision, skill and experience to help more and more women to emerge as power, mainstreamised and make institutions include them
