Towards a New Dawn

Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for supporting our Shelter home  – fighting against injustice and violence against women.

In the area of Seva Mandir’s work (Tribal areas) there are no institutional centers that can directly provide help to the abused women. In an effort to rectify this Seva Mandir's Short Stay Home was established in 2004 and since then it has represented an anchorage for women seeking refugee from abuse and violence, giving them access to safety and justice.

Each women that comes to the Shelter home comes from an extremely toxic environment that is psychologically damaging and some are even unable to share their experiences. Seva Mandir’s Shelter home provides psychological counseling to overcome their trauma. Legal counseling and financial counseling are also provided to the distressed women to overcome the situation.

Karishma (name changed) a woman living in our shelter says : “The shelter home has helped me when my own parents could not take a stand against the injustice towards me.  Being here has given a new direction to my life.”

Like Karishma, in the past fourteen years, many women were given shelter along with their children. Due to prolonged harassment and violence, most women coming to the Short Stay Home are depressed, hence various activities are undertaken to help them come out of this. Also they are connected to economic activities so that they can lead a respectable life later.

We thank you for your support in helping women like Karishma to restart their lives in a dignified way.

Regards

Atul Lekhra and the Seva Mandir Team
