Summary

Many women in rural India suffer violence and harassment at the hands of their families. There is a dire need to provide shelter for women who receive no support. Since 2004, Seva Mandir has been running a shelter home for women mainly from Udaipur district (though also for women from all over India) who have suffered abuse. The Shelter offers support and rehabilitation , counselling services, legal aid, medical and psychological care (at home or in hospital), skills development, and more.

Challenge

When women are subjected to domestic violence they often feel there is no way out. Leaving one's home is seen as shameful and a woman who walks out is often blamed for doing so, whatever the circumstances. Even in cases of extreme violence women frequently don't leave home because they feel that they have no safe place to go without losing respect and dignity.

Solution

Seva Mandir's Shelter Home provides a safe place to live and a support network for these women and their children. It offers shelter for up to five years, counselling services, legal aid, medical and psychological care (at home or in hospital), skills development training, employment opportunities, education for women and girls. Children are allowed to stay with their mother and educational facilities are provided for them.

Long-Term Impact

With training and proper counselling, these women can start to build new lives for themselves and their children. The Shelter aims to enable women either to return in safety to their marital home or to live independently and support themselves and their children.
