Often women and children of the urban slums fall victims to adversaries like abuse, rape, suppression, humiliation, mental trauma and accidents. Languishing under poverty they can’t raise their voice for any help. Such miseries are traced out by the 24 hour helpline services of the project and immediate steps taken to rescue, provide shelter, medical aid and repatriate them by counseling. They are given vocational training and education for ensuring their self-dependency.


We provide medical and legal help, immediately rescue and refer women to short stay homes, locate missing women with the help of police, counsel and guide them, inform and make them aware of available services for protection.

Long-Term Impact

This project will rescue & assist 600 women in distress and crisis annually with emergency shelter, medical, counseling and legal aid & advice and will help them till they are repatriated or rehabilitated.
