Story

The Problem - Over 2 million crimes against women were reported in India in the past decade, that’s 26 crimes an hour, not counting the atrocities that go unreported. For many women, justice is never attained and for those that are able to prosecute and those who go on to gain recognition through the courts, they are often left to heal from emotional trauma alone.  Sadly without support and care victims of gender-based violence can attribute blame internally feeling further isolated with the notion they are somehow to blame for violence, rape and brutality. 

The Solution - Your donations will enable Snehalaya to continue to keep the doors open offering vital services for Indian women so they are not defined by experiences of their past. Snehalaya means ‘Home of Love’ provides Rescue, Rights & Rehabilitation. It empowers women through education and healthcare services and with legal support.

Show Your Love - Write a Letter For HER is a global campaign to empower women in India. While donations will support women through grassroots organisation Snehalaya your can also transform someone’s outlook with a Letter for HER.

How it works: We invite you to show solidarity and empathy by putting pen to paper to produce an uplifting and encouraging moment of empathy and goodwill to share with women experiencing gender based violence. This can take any format and be as creative and decorative as you wish, the only request is they are handwritten.
