Summary

Sambhali Trust has been given an opportunity by the Department of Women and Child Development in Rajasthan to facilitate a new scheme that calls for a safe house to shelter women in difficult circumstances. In this upcoming project, innovative methods will be taken to ensure access to services: counselors, medical doctors, and legal advice. From women suffering domestic violence to mentally distressed women - all will be provided with emergency assistance and guidance.

Challenge

Indian women often face many difficulties within their family, community, and patriarchal Indian society. Women who have experienced domestic violence and abuse, widows, destitute and deserted women, women ex-prisoners, and women who are victims of abject social situations most often do not have a source of help or a place to go to seek refuge. Most often they have to come back to their abusive husbands, or they even commit suicides. Their families rarely help women in such circumstances.

Solution

We will offer protection and assistance as well as guidance and support to be able to facilitate women's transition, divorce, or any other difficulties, and ease their reintegration with the society safely and with dignity. Depressed, abused women will be give council and advice on what happened to them to ensure their mental health, and ensure that they take control of their lives once again.The project will maintain marginalised women with their dependent children.

Long-Term Impact

Our hope is to expand this project and be able to serve from 8 to 200 women a month, allowing them to be reintegrated with the society and stand on their own two feet after hardships in their life. It will allow women with problems to receive medical help. Moreover they will be informed about their legal rights and what steps to take in their situation. All women will also be given vocational trainings in sewing, Hindi and English, in our currently running Empowerment Centres.
